CLEARFIELD – Two Clearfield Borough police officers received promotions.
At Thursday’s Clearfield Borough Council meeting, Greg Neeper and Nathan Curry received promotions to assistant police chief and police sergeant.
According to previously published GANT News articles, in February, the council voted to promote Neeper to the position of assistant chief.
Neeper had been serving as the department’s sergeant. The position has been open since Chief Vince McGinnis was promoted in 2010. Neeper has been a member of the police department for more than 20 years.
Neeper’s promotion then left a vacancy for the sergeant’s position. The council voted to appoint Curry to sergeant.
At the meeting, both officers were presented with their new badges, and they will officially take their new positions April 22.
Also at the meeting, the council voted to approve:
- Traffic control for the Queens for a Cause 5K on June 11.
- Road closures for the Bloom and Berry Bash (June 16-17), The Clearfield Art Festival (Aug. 19) and the Clearfield Revitalization Corp.’s 5K Pumpkin Run (Oct. 14). All closures are pending PennDOT approval.
