Fenwick Police Get
Two New Officers

SC Online Publisher

The Fenwick Island Police Department has hired two new officers to bolster its undermanned staff, according to a press release from the department.

Patrolman Robert Smull and Patrolman Ethan Kaplan were certified by the Delaware Council on Police Training and sworn into office on Thursday, Sept. 5, 2002.

The release said the additions will now enable the department to provide 24-hour coverage again.

Patrolman Smull comes to Fenwick with 9 months of experience with the Bridgeport Police Department, while Patrolman Kaplan brings 11 months of experience from the Montgomery County (Pa.) Sheriff's Office.

The department had been down to three officers after a dispute with Police Chief George H. Dickerson Jr. led to his suspension with pay. Dickerson's attorney, James Liguori, said Dickerson will likely request a public hearing on the matter.

Council also hired former state trooper and Bethany Beach town manager Glenn Hudson as a "consultant" to the police department following an executive session on Tuesday, Sept. 3.
