Honoring The Officer Of The Year

Posted: February 13, 1986

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."

Elder is a graduate of Great Valley High School and West Chester University. He lives in the township with his wife, Karen, and two young sons.

A member of the Willistown Township Police Department for more than 10 years, Elder has served as a detective and a patrol officer.

Garth Wise, chairman of the supervisors, said it was the first such award in Willistown.
