Veteran Scott Township police Officer Edward Povirk was officially sworn-in Tuesday night to become the school resource officer at Chartiers Valley Intermediate.

Povirk was a member of the Scott Township Police Department for 21 years before retiring from the force in 2005.

He also was a D.A.R.E. officer for 10 years, so Scott Township and Chartiers Valley officials think he’s a perfect fit for the intermediate school.

“He’s absolutely the best choice,” Scott Township Commissioner Pat Caruso said. “It was unanimous on the board and we know you’ll do an excellent job.”

Povirk thanked his family and friends for their support throughout the years and for encouraging him through this process. He had to be recertified by the state before he could return to active duty with the police department.

“They really pushed me to do all the studying and make sure I didn’t give up,” Povirk said.

Povirk is a fully functioning police officer and will be carrying a gun at the intermediate school. Povirk in under the supervision of Scott Township police Chief Jim Secreet and will also be able to work as a patrol officer during summer break and in-service days.

Another police officer from Scott Township has been working as a school resource officer since Feb. 1 while Povirk worked to be recertified.
