During his first week as the borough's new police chief, Jack Egan was at his desk when a boy of about 10 knocked on the door of the police station. "Who are you?" the boy asked. When Egan identified himself as the chief, the boy said, "You're just the guy I'm looking for. " A friend had taken two of his Pokemon collector cards, and "he wanted me to retrieve them," Egan recalled. The youngster described the friend's house, and Egan agreed to meet him there. When the chief drove up, the youngster was standing outside.

A 40-year police veteran, he headed the Command Inspection Bureau, which runs the department during the night shift.

After three years directing the Somerdale Police Department, John Gibson finally will be able to make an official arrest. Gibson, previously a police lieutenant in Lawnside, was hired by the Borough of Somerdale in 1988 to replace a retiring chief. But Gibson, now 54, was older than the 45-year age limit set by state law for new civil servants. A bill signed by Gov. Florio last week granted Gibson an exemption, enabling him to use the title he was hired to carry: police chief.

Edward J. Hanko, the FBI's top agent in Philadelphia, will retire next month after a 29-year career with the bureau, he announced to agents Tuesday.

Among the first decisions Ed Hanko faced as he settled into his office last week as the FBI's top agent in Philadelphia was where to put the photo. The weathered black-and-white print shows about 60 helmeted coal miners at a plant in Ashley, Pa., just outside Hanko's hometown of Wilkes-Barre. Near the middle stands his father, Joseph, a second-generation Polish immigrant who never made it to high school. When Hanko was 12, his father took him to the mine for the first time. They boarded an elevator and disappeared into the earth, dropping into darkness until the boy could no longer see his hand in front of his face.

When a group of local investors went to retired FBI agent David A. Gentile last summer with a suggestion that he start his own security business, he was more than flattered.

Agents from an FBI behavioral analysis unit in Quantico, Va., will join the hunt for the man responsible for strangling at least two women in Kensington, an agency spokesman said. The agents will create a profile of the attacker in the cases that are believed linked, said FBI spokesman J.J. Klaver. The profile will assist Philadelphia detectives in their investigation of the sexual predator. "Quantico will get involved," Klaver said, referring to the unit at the FBI Academy. Klaver said the FBI would provide forensic assistance to the investigation, and he emphasized that the Philadelphia Police Department would remain the lead law enforcement agency on the case.
