3 with York County ties graduate from police academy


Three people with ties to York County were among the 29 cadets who graduated earlier this month from the HACC police academy, according to a news release.

Two work for police department in York County: Joseph Armondo Scerbo, of the Newberry Township Police Department, and Andrew Donald Shaffer, of the Northern York County Regional Police Department.

Jered Thomas Marshall, of Spring Grove, graduated but isn't affiliated with any department yet.

The graduation took place July 2, in the Sen. Jeffrey E. Piccola Law Enforcement Complex of the Sen. John J. Shumaker Public Safety Center on the community college's Harrisburg campus.

The second largest in the state, HACC's police academy offers the 20-week basic training course mandated for all Pennsylvania municipal police officers, according to the release.

This class was the 107th the academy has graduated.
