Morton Hires Two Part-Time Cops

The Mortin town council welcomed two new police officers, Eric Perna and Shaun Douglas, at their February meeting.

We are excited for both of our new officers to join our team, as they are both great additions to the Morton Police Department, said Mayor Thomas App .

Officer Perna graduated from the Police Academy in 2018. After graduating, Officer Perna was hired by East Lansdowne and Millbourne Police Department. In addition, Officer Perna proudly serves in the Marine Corps reserves for over 3 years now!

Officer Douglas graduated from the police academy in 2019. After graduating, Officer Douglas was hired by Sharon Hill Police Department.

At the meeting, App also thanked Amvets for their generous donation of two new American flags! These flags will be hung and displayed with honor in front of our police department and the Morton-Rutledge Fire Company.
