Chief's Commendations for Officers Schiffhauer & Tenney

At last night's York County Regional Police Commission Meeting Officers Michael Schiffhauer and Christopher Tenney, both received Chief's Commendation Awards.

Officer Michael Schiffhauer on March 8, 2022 successfully negotiated with a individual in Dallastown Borough that was contemplating “suicide by cop”.  The man was armed with a large machete and was begging the officers to shoot him.  Officer Schiffhauer, who was assigned to the York Co. QRT as a negotiator previously, used his skills to de-escalate the incident and get the man to peacefully surrender. 

Officer Christopher Tenney on April 4, 2022 conducted a traffic stop that resulted in a felony arrest. Officer Tenney stopped a man for an equipment violation that led to the seizure of 8 firearms and ammunition that the suspect possessed illegally.    

Congratulations to both officers on a job well done!!!
