Getting pinned – at the Monday, January 8, Front Royal Town Council meeting Front Royal Police Officers Marc Ramey and Jonathan Treese were acknowledged, Ramey for his transfer from the patrol division to investigations and Treese for his move into the department and its patrol division from Shenandoah County law enforcement.

FRPD Chief Kerry “Kahle” Magalis introduced the officers and Major Kevin Nicewarner and Captain Jason Ryman rounded out the departmental representation.

Officer Marc Ramey is congratulated for his move into investigations.

Ramey has served with FRPD since 2007 when he began in communications. He was named “Civilian Employee of the Year” in 2011. Ramey became an officer in the Patrol Division in January 2012 and was named “Officer of the Year” in 2015. He became a detective in November of last year. Ramey was pinned for that promotion by his girlfriend Lacey Lancaster.

While Treese just joined FRPD in December 2017, he is not a newcomer to law enforcement. The Woodstock resident holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Education from Messiah College and a Masters Degree in Criminal Justice and Public Administration from Liberty University. He switched career paths from teaching to law enforcement in 2008 when he became a reserve officer with the Strasburg Police Department. He was certified as a correctional officer and worked in the Shenandoah County Jail in 2009. He was then certified as a police officer in 2010 and continued to work in Shenandoah County law enforcement.

Treece was pinned for that move across county lines by his wife Sarah under the watchful eye of daughter Taryn.

Also on January 8, the family of the late Town Board of Zoning Appeals member Wayne L. Shipman was presented with a plaque of appreciation for his service to the community. Mayor Hollis Tharpe did the honors. Vice Mayor Eugene Tewalt recalled Shipman’s appointment in February of 2010 and noted the conscientiousness of his commitment to the town. Shipman continued to serve on the BZA until his passing on December 18, 2017.

In a moving and emotional moment, Shipman’s family received a standing ovation from council, town staff and the public upon the mayor’s presentation.

The family of the late Board of Zoning Appeals member Wayne L. Shipman receives a token of the town government’s appreciation of their loved one’s nearly 8 years of service to his community.
