Wednesday night, Pottstown Borough Council voted on a new set of officers for the Pottstown Police Department.
All were sworn in by Pottstown Mayor Bonnie Heath.
Bob Thomas was named as the new Captain of the department, replacing Rick Drumheller who was named chief last month.
Barry Grimm was sworn in as the department's newest sergeant.
And Mike Long was named the department's newest corporal.
And finally, in a what seemed a genuine surprise to him, Borough Manager Mark Flanders, who officially retired as the chief in April after 34 years with the department, was presented with his honorable discharge papers in a frame and a commendation from the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office.
