Kennett Square Borough Council officially promoted part-time police officer Jeremiah Boyer to a full-time member of the borough’s police department at Monday night’s council meeting.

Police Chief Edward Zunino said that Boyer is filling a vacancy that was created when a full-time officer resigned.

 Boyer started working with the Kennett Square Police Department in July of 2013.

“His performance has been exceptional,” Zunino said.

Boyer, a U.S. Army veteran, holds a Master’s degree in elementary education from Lincoln University. He also has an extensive background in social services and has worked in crisis intervention and has been a behavioral therapist.

Zunino said that Boyer’s varied experiences should be an asset as a police officer.

“He believes in helping those who do not have the resources to help themselves,” Zunino said.

Zunino also noted that Boyer has strong family ties to the community. Boyer’s father and grandparents have lived in the borough, and he is related to two former police officers who worked in Kennett Square in the 1970s. He is also a cousin of current borough council president Leon Spencer, who abstained from the vote when council voted 6-0 to approve Boyer’s promotion.

Boyer and his wife reside in West Chester. They have two children.

Kennett Square Mayor Matt Fetick expressed his support for the promotion. 

“I love it when one of our part-time officers has the opportunity to become a full-time officer,” Fetick said.
