WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The only remaining full-time police officer in Greencastle, Pa., other than the department chief, received approval to be hired for the Waynesboro Police Department by the Waynesboro Borough Council on Wednesday.
Officer Robert Petrunak has been the sole full-time officer with the Greencastle Police Department since one colleague resigned in December 2005 and another in January of this year.
If Petrunak accepts the offer from Waynesboro, Chief Peter Mozurkevich will be working with about half a dozen part-time officers and no full-timers, said Charles Eckstine, Greencastle borough council president.
He and Greencastle Mayor Robert Eberly expressed surprise at Waynesboro's offer when contacted by phone Wednesday night. Neither had received a letter of resignation.
