New police officer sworn in
Michael McCarrick joins force after stints in Delaware County departments
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.
on April 25 at the township administration building, 1090 Troxel Road. For more information or meeting agendas and materials visit www.Towamencin. org.
