WAYNESBORO, Pa. — Waynesboro’s police chief announced Tuesday he will retire after four years in the post.
Mark King’s last working day will be April 20.
The Waynesboro Borough Council accepted his resignation at its Wednesday meeting and decided to advertise for a new police chief. The council members thanked King for his efforts.
“I know he did a lot of things we can’t see,” Councilman Craig Newcomer said, saying King, 44, tackled many administrative duties behind the scenes.
King, a 1985 Waynesboro Area Senior High School graduate, holds a degree in business administration from Frostburg State University and received his police academy training at Harrisburg (Pa.) Area Community College.
