Sean P. Bryson, an Upper St. Clair High School graduate, has been hired as his former school district's new chief of police. He will succeed outgoing Chief Joe Conners next month.

The Upper St. Clair School District has tapped a former student as its next chief of police, officials announced Thursday.

Sean P. Bryson, a graduate of Upper St. Clair High School, returns to his hometown after 20 years serving with the Arlington County Police Department in Virginia.

"Sean is a great addition to our school safety and security team," Superintendent Patrick O'Toole said in a statement.

"His experience and training in law enforcement coupled with his strong ties to the Upper St. Clair community will be helpful as we continuously assess and enhance our school safety practices and procedures."

Bryson earned an administration of justice degree from the University of Pittsburgh.

He succeeds outgoing school police Chief Joe Conners, who is retiring effective June 14.

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.
