Congratulations to Auxiliary Sgt. Lee Olson on his retirement from the Manchester Township Police Auxiliary Unit.

Untitled2Sgt. Olson was honored this afternoon with a ceremony where Chief Lisa Parker and the Command Staff presented him with a plaque of appreciation. Further, Business Administrator Donna Markulic read a proclamation from Mayor Kenneth Palmer recognizing Sgt. Olson’s contributions to our town.

As a volunteer Auxiliary Officer, Sgt. Olson has selflessly dedicated countless hours of his time to the residents of Manchester Township. He joined the unit in January of 2012 and his hard work earned him a promotion to the rank of Auxiliary Sergeant in May of 2013. Since then, he has served as a leader in the unit, mentoring new recruits as an Auxiliary Field Training Officer.

In his resignation letter, Sgt. Olson wrote, in part: “The last four years have been a very proud and memorable experience for me… I am grateful for the opportunity to put on the uniform and do the best I could, to perform the duty I was trained to do.”

On behalf of Chief Parker and the entire Manchester Township Police Department, thank you Sgt. Olson for your service.
