Prior to being named to this position I served for 26 years with the Pennsylvania State Police. During my time with the PSP, I served for 21 years at the Troop M, Fogelsville Station as a Trooper, Patrol Corporal and Station Commander Lieutenant. While stationed at the Fogelsville Station, I built very strong and positive relationships with the administration, staff and students of our school district. On May 6, 2017, I was promoted to Captain and assumed command of Troop P Wyoming, which covered Bradford, Northern Luzerne, Sullivan and Wyoming counties. I held that position until I retired from the PSP in January 2019. I am also a graduate of the 273rd session of the FBI National Academy in Quantico Virginia.
In addition to myself, the NWLSPD is fortunate to have hired several other experienced law enforcement officers to include:
Officer Kevin Birosik, a retired Allentown City Police Officer with over 22 years of law enforcement.
Officer Paul Dunstan, a retired Pennsylvania State Trooper with over 25 years of law enforcement experience.
Officer Amanda George, currently employed as a Kutztown University Police with over 15 years of experience.
The motto of our Department – Prevent, Protect, Connect, defines what we wish to accomplish. This goal is something that we cannot attain on our own. In order to achieve the protection of the students, employees and visitors our officers are committed to building relationships with students and parents based on mutual trust, respect and communication. The safety, security and well-being of our students is the common goal, one that can be accomplished only through a cooperative effort between students, teachers, parents, officers and administrators. I personally look forward to meeting you and your children as the school year progresses.
Together we must all continue to make the NWLSD a safer, more secure environment where students can maximize their talents and skills, providing them a springboard to success in all of their current and future endeavors. My officers and I look forward to being an integral part of the finest school district in the land.
