New Garden >> Several police officers at the Southern Chester County Regional Police Department earned awards last week for exceptional work.
DUI first year enforcement awards for 2017 went to police officers Stephen Syska, Raymond Sullivan, Matthew Cordone and Police Officer First Class Joseph Cooper. Second year DUI enforcement awards went to police officers Stephen Madonna, Benjamin Brown and Jeremy O’Neill.
Ptl. Jeremy O’Neill earned the 2017 Commissioners Award. The Commissioners Award recipient, formally known as the Chief Gerald W. Davis award, is earned by a police officer’s actions and conduct in the field.
“From leading the department in DUI arrests, many involving opioids, his actions in saving at least two individuals during opioid overdose events to finally taking on use of force training responsibilities, Officer O’Neill stood above and beyond his peers in 2017,” said Jerry Simpson, who heads up the Southern Chester County Regional Police Department.
