East Goshen Township Board of Supervisors: Remove College Degree requirement for Westtown East Goshen Police Chief

      West Chester, PA

We as residents of Westtown, East Goshen, and Thonrbury townships feel that certain individuals who have job experience and the adequate department "know how" in the current WEGO department, should be allowed not only to interview but be considered fully for the position of Police Chief, without requiring a college degree. A member of the Board of Supervisors, formally the Police Commissioner and other employees of the township hold their positions successfully without holding a college degree. We ask that the same "on the job" experience should be considered when accepting applicants for the police chief position.

      Life has taught us that more can be achieved from experience. I've known Lt Cahill as a caring person, devoted to his community, going all the way to support them, no matter how big or small the case. He is more than qualified for this position and has earned it

      There is nothing that can be learned in a classroom that exceeds the value of

      30-years experience. A dedicated and loyal public servant who has spent his life keeping residents safe and preserving the integrity of our communities should not be overlooked for a promotion. He deserves the same opportunity given a college graduate who has spent a few years gleaning information from books, but who has never spent time in our communities preserving peace and keeping our residents safe.

      Lt. Cahill is committed to law enforcement and this community, as demonstrated by his decades of service. If he wants the job it should be his.

      I believe experience is very important to this position and he should be considered and interviewed for the position.

      Working in East Goshen Township for over 35 years and having the police force that we do is very important to the well being and safety to every resident as well as those like myself who work here. On the job traiing and good common sense approach is better than much eduction received in the classroom.
