LPD Citizens Academy grad to be on radio, and other tidbitsPosted Wednesday, July 14, 2010, at 10:49 PM
A former Greene Countian, Katey Baruth, is going to be a special guest on a radio program in Connecticut on Thursday.
Chief Troy Jerrell of the Linton Police Department shared this news with me this week -- Katey was a member of the first graduating class of the LPD's Citizens Academy.
In Greene County, Baruth served as the program manager at the Bloomfield office of Hamilton Center. Dr. Katey Baruth has since moved east and is now a professor of psychology at Post University.
Jerrell said when he heard from Katey, he found out the police department where she now lives in Naugatuck recently started their own citizens academy and Baruth got involved.
I would assume she was interested because of the great experience she had in the LPD program!
The local newspaper ran a story about the Naugatuck academy and interviewed Baruth.
Now the local AM radio station is going do a special interview with the police captain who organized the program there and they've invited Baruth to be a special guest.
I imagine Chief Jerrell will be tuning in to hear his former student and it looks like we can too, over the internet.
It's scheduled to air at 11:30 a.m. Thursday on WATR -- 1320 News Talk radio. They stream their programs live online at watr.com
In other news from Greene County's cop shops, a new website is being built for the Greene County Sheriff's Department and it's shaping up into what looks to be a very nice resource for the community. They say it's not quite ready for prime time yet -- there will be a story in the paper when it's ready for its big debut.
I ran into more good news up at the fire station in Worthington this week -- Chad Green was there watching the fire department come in off a run. He looked great and was walking tall on his own power. He said the treatments are working in his battle against MS and obviously, he's made a lot of progress. Hopefully I can get out to visit with Jaimie and Chad this summer and share an update on their long ordeal and how it's going.
