Acting Police Chief Sworn In and Police Helicopter Buzzed Conshohocken

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.

Here are two photos from the police department of the swearing in:

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.”
