2020 Volunteer of the Year - Robert McKenna "Flags Over Murrysville" - Mr. Robert McKenna was presented a plaque thanking him for all his hard work with American Legion Post 711 and the volunteers who help with placing the 340 flags along William Penn Highway for the holidays. Calls and emails are received by the staff, Council, and the Mayor from residents and out of towners driving through Murrysville and seeing the flags. It makes us proud as a community to be recognized for something like this.
Murrysville Police Department Premiere Agency Accreditation - Chief Seefeld gave a presentation and overview of the Pennsylvania Law Enforcement Accreditation Program. You have to have a good core of police officers in order to succeed in the Accreditation Program. We only hire the best. This took a team effort and a lot of work. There are three phases in the process: Application, Self-Assessment, and Formal Assessment. On March 18, 2021 PLEAC awarded and recognized the Murrysville Police Department as a Premiere Law Enforcement Agency with five 3-year cycles of re-accreditation in 15 years. There are only 15 agencies in the state with Premiere status and only 2 this side of Harrisburg - Murrysville Police Department and Findlay Township Police Department. The Murrysville Police Department will continue, as it has in the past, to provide the community with guaranteed professional police service.
