New Police Officer in Montgomeryville
There's a new face on the Montgomery Township Police Department. Police recruit Jake Beebe was sworn-in Monday night during a brief ceremony at a meeting of the township supervisors. He fills the open spot in the department created by the retirement of Lieutenant Mark Houghtaling and will earn about $60,000 a year in his new position. Beebe says he has known since middle school that life would lead him into a career in law enforcement. With him on board, the Montgomery Township Police Department now has a full roster of 36 officers.
