New police officer hired in Shaler Township

Wednesday, Jan. 9, 2013, 11:48 a.m.
 

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.
