Congratulations Officer John Kiefer

The South Hills Area Council of Governments Critical Incident Response Team
(SHACOG CIRT) held a recognition ceremony in Bethel Park on October 17, 2019.
The entire CIRT team was recognized for their tireless devotion to training and incident response, but more especially the tactical operators who responded to the Tree of Life shooting in October 2018.
 
CSPD Officer Kiefer (CIRT -Tactical Operator), seen in these photos in uniform, responded and played a crucial part in the overall response.

We are grateful to our representatives on the CIRT team and offer congratulations to Officer Kiefer for receiving the Medal of Valor.
