FTPD’s Borlan Promoted To Captain, Sworn In At Township Council Meeting

6-14-16 meeting - 3

FTPD Capt. Gregory Borlan is sworn in during the June 14 Township Council meeting.

Franklin Township Police Lt. Gregory Borlan became Capt. Borlan at the June 14 Township Council meeting.

A 23-year department veteran, Borlan was sworn into his new position surrounded by his family and with a number of fellow officers looking on.

The council recently re-established the captain position at the request of Chief Lawrence Roberts. Roberts said the department needed a captain’s position to allow for a smooth transition when a new chief is needed.

Borland thanked Roberts for “trusting me and looking out for my career and also being a stand-up guy.”

He also thanked his family for their support during his career.

“Part of my job as a chief is to groom people and prepare forth future of the police department,” Roberts said. He said neither he nor the deputy chief have any plans to leave anytime soon, but when they do, the “proper people” will be in place.

Borlan, Roberts said, is “always willing to help everybody out, he’s always willing to go that extra mile.”

“He deserved this,” Roberts said.

Mayor Phillip Kramer said he was “very proud” of Borlan’s achievement.

“I noticed that with that extra bar on your shoulders, you look just a little bit taller,” Kramer told Borlan.
