Alpha member Barrett Smith is sworn in as a Lieutenant at State College Police Department on August 8, 2012. Aadministering the oath is another Alpha Member, Magisterial District Judge Carmine W. Prestia, Jr.
Lt. Smith has been with the State College Police Department for thirteen years and with Alpha even longer. In addition to having been a line officer he has been President of the Company and is currently treasurer. Lt. Smith is also one of the Centre Region Fire Marshalls. He is married to the former Julie Simpson and they have three children.
Kudos to Lt. Smith for the promotion and thanks to Chief King and the State College Police Department for allowing the nice touch of inviting fellow Alpha, Judge Prestia to administer the oath of office.
