  • Personality spotlight - Harlean Howard

    What began as a personal challenge for Lancaster Police Chief Harlean Howard has developed into a lifelong career.

    “It started out for me as a challenge because when I came into law enforcement in the 1970s, it was traditionally an occupation dominated by males,” Howard said. “The more I learned, the more experience I gained, and the more I grew to love the job.”

  • Gregory instrumental in creating ‘Pat’s Law’

    When my sister was murdered in 2003, she was killed by an intentionally set house fire. The women who murdered my sister received a 25-year sentence for killing her. They also received 25 years for burning her house.
    The sentences would be served at the same time and they would only have to serve about 85 percent of the sentence. In other words, they would only have to serve a little more than 21 years for killing my sister and burning her house. They were not eligible for the death penalty because arson was not considered a weapon used in a violent crime.
