Last Thursday night Borough Council meeting turned into a lovefest for the Elizabethtown Police Department -- and rightly so.

Two officers were honored for their work with the department. Detective Clair Martin was recognized for 26 years of service to the community upon retiring from the department on Jan. 3. And Officer Rick Farnsler received the Police Officer of the Year Award, an honor bestowed on him by his fellow officers in the department.
