Wrightsville’s Mayor Neil Habecker released a statement about the borough’s newest police chief — Ron Hege. Hege was sworn in during the Oct. 1, 2012 borough meeting and has since been looking for ways to update how the department works, Habecker said.
Here’s what Habecker wrote:
Chief Hege took the helm of the Wrightsville Borough Police Department in October of 2012. Chief Hege was referred to Wrightsville by several area law enforcement professionals following the departure of Chief Wayne Pearson in the summer of 2012.
Chief Hege recently retired from the Baltimore City Police Department after 21 years of exemplary service to the city. Chief Hege had worked briefly as a patrol officer in West York Borough prior to taking the Chief’s position in Wrightsville.
In the past six months, Chief Hege has been reviewing and updating departmental policies, procedures and equipment. Wrightsville Borough currently employs a Chief of Police and four Patrol Officers. I am happy to report that our Chief of Police and Officers are working very well together.
Borough Council and I are extremely pleased with the progress that Chief Hege has made since his arrival in October.
