Thomas A. Habgood, a resident  of Yardley was officially welcomed to the police  department ranks this weeks council meeting. He is the fourth part timer hired by the borough this year.

Habgood, a graduate of the Temple’s Police Academy has been in training with the department over the last month, paired off with senior officers at local events.

Habgood earned a Bachelors Degree in Criminology from Indiana University at Pennsylvania.

“I just want to  thank you for the opportunity.  This is one of the best opportunities I’ve had. I love working with the community  ..especially one that has your back” Habgood said.
