New police officer hired in Shaler Township
Shaler Township added a new police officer to its force following a unanimous vote at the township's Board of Commissioner's Jan. 8 meeting.
The board approved the employment of Scott Carney, 26, of Cranberry Township, from a list of three applicants approved and certified by the township Civil Service Commission.
Carney, a Seneca Valley graduate, received a bachelor's degree in criminal justice and a minor in accounting from Westminster College. Following graduation he enrolled in the Allegheny County Police Academy.
Carney has worked as a part-time officer for the Edgeworth and Economy police departments, and served the past three years as an officer for the University of Pittsburgh Police Department.
“It feels really good,” Carney said after the board's approval. “I've been looking for a good job like this in a good township for a while.”
Carney will join the Shaler Police Department of 25 officers.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
