TOWAMENCIN » The new­est mem­ber of the Towamencin Town­ship Po­lice Depart­ment has now re­ceived his badge.

Of­fi­cer Michael McCar­rick was sworn in Wed­nes­day night by su­per­vi­sors Pres­i­dent Chuck Wil­son be­fore a crowd of fam­ily, friends and town­ship of­fi­cials.

Ac­cord­ing to po­lice Chief Tim Dick­in­son, McCar­rick grew up in Delaware County and grad­u­ated from Mon­signor Bon­ner High School in 2003, be­fore at­tend­ing cour­ses at Delaware County Com­mu­nity Col­lege and com­plet­ing that col­lege’s Mu­nic­i­pal Po­lice Academy in 2011.

Since then, McCar­rick has worked as a se­cu­rity of­fi­cer at Up­per Darby High School since 2014, and as a po­lice of­fi­cer in Col­wyn Bor­ough and Mill­bourne Bor­ough in Delaware County since 2016. His hir­ing fills a va­cancy cre­ated by the re­tire­ment of former Sgt. Gary Wacker

in Oc­to­ber 2017, ac­cord­ing to Dick­in­son, and brings

the depart­ment up to 22 ac­tive duty of­fi­cers, with one more new hire and one pro­mo­tion pos­si­ble in the com­ing weeks.

Towamencin’s su­per­vi­sors next meet at 7:30 p.m.
