One down, one to go.

At a special meeting on Friday, Jefferson Hills council chose Corey Brunetti, 23, of South Park Township to fill one of two full-time vacancies on the police force.

“I come from a law enforcement family,” said Brunetti, whose brother is a Peters Township policeman. Their father is retired from the South Park police.

Brunetti has a bachelor's degree in criminal justice with a minor in sociology from Penn State Altoona. He graduated in December from the Allegheny County Police Academy.

Councilman Tracey P. Khalil moved to hire Brunetti. Councilwoman Janice R. Cmar seconded and council president Christopher W. King, vice president James A. Weber and Councilors Vickie Ielase and David T. Montgomery capped the unanimous ballot.

Councilwoman Kathleen Reynolds was absent. The borough now will turn to the other vacancy.

“I'm still finishing a background investigation because we have to present a list of three certified candidates for the Civil Service Commission,” police Chief Gene Roach said.

Roach has overseen the process, which began with oral examinations for 20 candidates in October.
