On Monday October 30, 2017 I received information that our organizations name appeared on a political flier that was distributed throughout Westmoreland County. The fliers content may appear to some, that we as an organization, are endorsing a particular candidate. I am writing this to set the record clear. The Upper Burrell Township Police Department cannot and does not endorse any particular candidate over another. Furthermore, any references to the Upper Burrell Township Police Department in whole or in part which is used in any political campaign literature is being done without our consent. Thank you, Kenneth Pate Chief of Police

Youth Commission Members Needed The City of Lower Burrell and Upper Burrell Township are participating members of the Westmoreland County Youth Commission. The purpose of the Youth Commission is to allow communities the opportunity to help young people involved with the Court to solve problems within their own communities. It is believed that the Youth Commission can provide the community with a local diversionary program that would more closely supervise a young person. The Youth Commission is comprised of dedicated community volunteers who provide better opportunities for learning, readjusting, and conforming to the laws of our society. It is also charged with helping the youth take responsibility for his/her actions and repair the harm caused to the victims and/or community. The commission acts as a branch of the Juvenile Court System. All members of the Commission must be aware of the confidential relationship between the court, juvenile, and Commission. The jurisdiction of the Youth Commission will be confined to the summary offenses, criminal charges not involving force and dependent charges filed by parents or the school district. All prospective members shall be of good character and community standing. The Juvenile Probation Office will complete a criminal history check. All prospective members will be required to obtain a Child Abuse Clearance. New members shall be sworn in by either a Juvenile Court Judge or the local Magisterial District Judge. All new members are required to attend orientation training. The training is offered twice a year and is free. If anyone is interested, please contact Sgt. Cole Speer at the Upper Burrell Police Department at 724-335-0664.

A message from President Chuck Canterbury, National Fraternal Order of Police. I commend him for publicly acknowledging this issue while it goes ignored by our President.

Osmose will be in and around Upper Burrell Township performing contract work for West Penn Power. They will be inspecting utility poles and may be required to enter private property lands to inspect poles on West Penn Power right of way. Workers will have the proper identification as well as a copy of their work orders.

We continue to grieve as we lost yet another local police officer. Det. Paul Koropal passed away yesterday while executing narcotic search warrants in Fayette County. "PJ" as he was known, was an 18 year veteran detective within the Allegheny County District Attorneys Office. PJ will be remembered as a loyal and dedicated member of law enforcement and will be deeply missed by colleagues and friends throughout Western Pennsylvania. Please keep PJ's wife, children and family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
