SWATARA TOWNSHIP -- On Jan. 8, Swatara Township Police Chief Jason Umberger honored several officers for their outstanding police work.

Patrolman Thomas Robbins and Patrolman Matthew Corby were both recognized for their outstanding police work while on a traffic stop in May 2013. During that stop, more than 160 bags of heroin were seized and taken off the streets of Swatara Township.

Corporal Brandon Pokrop was recognized as the 2013 Officer of the Year for his many accomplishments including the creation of the Swatara Police 5K Hero Run, Bicycle Rodeo, and Citizens Police Academy.

In addition, Pokrop oversees the planning of the township's National Night Out, regularly teaches students through the department's T.E.A.M. program and oversees the Bicycle Unit.

Det. David Horner was also recognized for receiving the Craig Webb Memorial Award by the Dauphin County Commissioners on Dec. 18. Horner has been with the department for more than 25 years and has worked with other law enforcement organizations such as the Dauphin County Crisis Response Team.

Today, he works behind the scenes as a forensics expert, investigating deaths, homicides and suicides, robberies, burglaries, and assaults.
