Monroeville hires two police officers

| Friday, July 6, 2018 3:51 p.m

Monroeville has hired two full-time police officers, bringing the municipality’s force up to 45.

Mayor Nick Gresock swore in Craig Huhn, 30, and Justin Reed, 28, during a recent agenda setting meeting. Both will make $56,000 per year starting out.

Huhn most recently worked for the City of Pittsburgh in Zone 2, the Hill District, where he worked for four years, police Chief Doug Cole said.

Reed, 28, most recently worked at Indiana Borough Police Department in Indiana County.

“Both officers come with experience,” Cole said. “We’re glad to have them on board.”

Huhn and Reed start July 9 and will undergo training during a six-month probationary period, Cole said.

Cole said the two spots became available due to retirements earlier in 2017. He does not expect any additional retirements this year, but said there might be some in 2019.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
