In his 20 years with the department, Daly has served as senior training officer, was a part of the Drug Task Force through the Attorney General’s Office, was a member of the city’s tactical response team, coordinated the crash reporting system with the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation and helped organize the Buckle Up program.
In a letter addressed to Police Chief Bob Wenner that was presented to City Council on Sept. 22, Daly wrote:
“I am very proud to have been employed by the Oil City police department over the past several years. It has been a childhood dream job of mine to be a police officer and, as an added bonus, I have been blessed to serve the community in which I was raised and educated in as a police officer.”
Wenner said Daly was someone who stepped up and went above and beyond in the line of duty.
“His life reflects a commitment to service,” Wenner said. “I’m proud to have worked with him…He will be missed.”
