Lt. George Metz was sworn in this evening as the Acting Police Chief of the Conshohocken Police Department. Chief Michael Orler retired last week and there is a search committee that will be seeking a replacement for Orler. Metz has also announced that he is going to retire.

Wondering what that helicopter was doing over Conshohocken in the 7:00 p.m. hour? That was a police helicopter from Philadelphia and it was buzzing Conshy to celebrate the swearing in of the new acting police chief. Here is video of the helicopter:
The helicopter flying so low caused some concern. People had no idea what the situation was and we received a couple text messages asking what was up. One person commented on Facebook that people were “running off the street into restaurants not knowing what is going on.”
