[ARCHIVED] Police officers recognized for response during standoff

South Fayette Township police officers Griffith, Monyak and Handerhan

South Fayette Township police officers Collin Griffith, Bryan Monyak and Chuck Handerhan have been honored for their response to a July situation involving a barricaded suspect.

Police Chief John Phoennik and the Board of Commissioners recognized the officers in October for their actions during the 6-hour standoff at a local motel. The officers coordinated their efforts with county, state and FBI personnel and contributed to the safe removal of a teenager from a dangerous situation.

"All three demonstrated the utmost valor and courage in handling the situations," Chief Phoennik said.

“Their training kicked in, and they handled a very difficult situation the way it should be handled.”
