ALBION – William Scribner takes the oath while being sworn in tonight as sergeant in the Albion Police Department. Scribner previously worked with the Medina PD. He started as a patrolman in Albion in 2005.

His wife Dena is holding the Bible while Village Clerk Linda Babcock is pictured at left. Police Department Lt. Tom O’Hearn, back left, and Police Chief Roland Nenni joined Scribner for the swearing-in.

Scribner’s parents Harold and Eloise Scribner of Lyndonville placed Scribner’s sergeant bars on his uniform.

Nenni said past police promotions were typically low-key occasions. But Nenni wanted Scribner to be recognized during a public meeting in front of the Village Board and community members.

“Bill has a long history with us,” Nenni said. “He is very well disciplined. He’ll fit in good with the command staff.”
