Officer Commendation (Please Share) On February 20, 2018 Ptlm Curtis Groff was presented the following commendation by Chief Leahy before the North Cornwall Township Board of Supervisors: You are being commended for actions taken on February 08, 2018 while assisting Ptlm. Bender of the Cornwall Borough Police Department. You were called to assist in looking for a 16-year-old female who had walked off from her grandmother’s residence at Alden Place in Cornwall Borough. On that evening it was extremely cold and temperatures were in the teens, which presented an indifferent situation to this young woman. After searching for some time, first responders talked of breaking off the search. You continued searching, eventually locating the lightly clothed young female, who had fallen down a hill and was barely conscious. This young woman was exposed to frigid temperatures and finding her was not only important but necessary for her survival. Hershey Medical Center Doctors treating her, said “had it not been for your actions she would have died from exposure within the hour”. Your actions exemplify our Police Department’s Mission Statement, “To Protect and Serve.” To Protect with vigilance the safety, rights and property of all by aggressively pursuing violators of the law. To Serve with pride, compassion and excellence, striving to provide aid, solve crime, impartially enforcing the laws and support to any and all in need. Your job performance and willingness to go the “extra mile” shows your dedicated service to the North Cornwall Township Police Department and to the citizens we serve. For these reasons, I wish to commend you. I sincerely appreciate your contributions and dedication to providing Professional Police Services to the residents of Lebanon County and this “Agency”.
