Brookville, PA – Brookville’s longtime officer Vince Markle has accepted the position of Brookville’s new chief of police.
Chief Markle has been with the Brookville Borough Police for 20 years. He’s worked extensively with the DARE anti-drug program and with the Jefferson County Drug Task Force.
He says he hopes to make Brookville even better, making people feel safe walking down the streets at night without having to worry.
Chief Markle also says it’s the entire community’s job to call whenever they see something they don’t feel is right. He would rather answer hundreds of calls that turn out to be nothing rather than not be alerted about a dangerous situation.
Markle secedes Jason Brown who is leaving the post on Feb. 16 for the newly created job of Safety and Security Coordinator for the Monroe County School District in the Florida Keys. It is the Keys’ only school district. The job was created following the impact of Hurricane Irma.
