Jerry W. Daley, assistant chief probation officer for Elk County, was awarded a citation Friday from State Rep. Matt Gabler in recognition of his retirement and 24 years of public service.
â€śI'd like to present this citation, whereas the House of Representatives of Pa. has always tried to acknowledge those individuals who give professional excellence and bring great credit to themselves and this Commonwealth,â€ť Gabler said.
Daley began his tenure with the county Probation and Parole Department, which is responsible for supervising adult and juvenile offenders sentenced by the Elk/Cameron Court of Common Pleas on March 11, 1987 as a juvenile probation officer.
Over the years, he rose in rank, becoming an intensive adult probation officer on May 8, 1980 and an assistant chief probation officer on April 19, 1994, the position from which he is retiring.
â€śThroughout his service, Mr. Daley represented remarkable knowledge, ability and integrity in carrying out his many responsibilities, earning the respect and gratitude of all those who received the benefit of his tireless devotion to duty,â€ť Gabler said. â€śThe House of Representatives and the Commonwealth of Pa. congratulate Jerry W. Daley upon his well-deserved retirement and heartily recognize his exemplary directive of service in keeping with the high ideals and traditions of the Commonwealth.â€ť
Daley was also presented with a wooden plaque created by Elkwood Arts in recognition of his tenure.
