Narberth's mayor and council, as well as the Montgomery County District Attorney's office, honored retired Narberth Police Lt. Art Pavoni at Monday's council meeting.
Pavoni left the force in December after 28 years. He was the highest-ranking officer in the six-man department, whose chief is Mayor Tom Grady.
"I thought I knew a lot of people in town. ... Lt. Pavoni knows everybody in town," Grady said, presenting the lieutenant with an award of appreciation. "We appreciate everything you've done in the past 28 years."
Assistant district attorney Chris Maloney thanked Pavoni for his role in the county's drug task force: "The police department should reflect the values of the community, and what Art has done in his career exemplifies what Narberth is all about."
The borough expects to hire replacements for Pavoni and Officer James Conway, , in the spring.
