Patrolman Alan Loskoch will be presented the award on Thursday, October 29 at the Pennsylvania DUI Association’s 36 annual conference in State College.
It’s an honor to receive it,” said Loskoch, who was commended by township commissioners Wednesday night.
Loskoch was hired full-time in January 2014 and started February 1. During the 11 months that Loskoch worked in 2014, he made 50 of the department’s 70 DUI arrests. About 40 percent of those were driving under the influence of drugs.
Loskoch said it takes a lot of time and effort, but said he truly believes driving under the influence of narcotics is truly dangerous. His cases have a 100 percent conviction rate.
Harmony Police Chief Robert Sivewright asked retired Harmony Police Chief Jim Essek if he would submit a nomination letter for the award on Loskoch’s behalf. His response was “most definitely.”
Officer Loskoch has dedicated himself to making the highways in Harmony Township safer by his constant vigilance,” Essek wrote.
Loskoch received the award for Beaver County this past year. The latest recognition is a statewide honor.
