BRACKENRIDGE, Pa. — Justin McIntire was sworn in as Brackenridge’s police chief on Jan. 2, 2019.
Exactly four years later, McIntire was shot and killed in the line of duty.
According to our news partners at the Trib, Councilman Dino Lopreiato said McIntire stepped up and helped out when the previous chief retired after 20 years.
“He’s been great,” Lopreiato told the Trib in 2018. “We feel really good about our choice. He’s done an exemplary job the years he’s been in Brackenridge.”
