Butler Township police chief to retire



BUTLER TWP — Township police Chief Gary Garman, 65, will retire next week after about 40 years of police service, township commissioners announced Monday night.
Garmin’s retirement date is Jan. 15.
As chief of the township police department for 27 years, he has overseen a force that has grown to 21 full-time officers and is an active member of the Butler County Drug Task Force. He also is credited with forming the department’s first investigative unit.
“I just thought, maybe it’s time. I’ve had a 40-hour-a-week job ever since I was in eighth grade,” Garman said this morning.
“You get a little bit older and you want to start going out and doing some things while you still have your health.”
Garman said he looks forward to spending time with his four grandchildren as well as the classic Mustang and pair of Corvettes in his garage.
“I haven’t had a chance to get them out most of the time,” he said of the cars.
A native of North Huntington Township, Westmoreland County, Garman started his career with the department as chief in June 1986.
