Brusly SRO fired regarding certifications

Written by Aaron Williams on . Posted in Local

After lengthy discussion, the Brusly Town Council voted Monday night to terminate the employment of well-known Brusly policeman and school resource officer, Gil Banta.

In a 4-1 vote, with only councilman Shane Andre voting against the recommendation, the council agreed to fire Banta – after explaining that it was not personal – based on his lack of basic and firearms Peace Officer Standards and Training Council (POST) certifications.

Interim Police Chief Richie Johnson said that Banta’s lack of POST certifications creates an issue, not only with the POST Council, but also with the town’s insurance carrier.
