The Willistown Board of Supervisors has honored township police Officer Kenneth "Skip" Elder, 33, with the 1985 Officer of the Year award.
Elder was chosen for the honor by his fellow police officers. The award and an accompanying check were presented to him at Tuesday's meeting of the supervisors.
Police Chief Robert Valyo said the award was presented to the officer "who displayed the most outstanding performance of his duties for the year." Valyo said Elder "is self-motivated and does follow-ups himself."
