It is with a heavy heart that the York Area Regional Police Department acknowledges the “End of Watch” of one of its brothers. Corporal Michael S. Georgiou age 35, an 11 year member of the department and a native son of Tarkington Prairie, Texas, was killed early Sunday morning August 3, 2014 in an ATV accident. Cpl. Georgiou was vacationing in his hometown and celebrating the birthday of his 14 year old daughter at the time.
Cpl. Georgiou was an assistant supervisor of one of the department’s night shift squads, a member of the department’s Motorcycle Unit, head of the department’s Honor Guard and had received numerous department awards and commendations. He earned the Pennsylvania DUI Association’s “Top Gun” award several times for his exceptional work in DUI enforcement and was a certified “DRE” (Drug Recognition Expert).
Corporal Georgiou’s “larger than life” personality and presence will be greatly missed at the department and in the law enforcement community of York County. Plans for a memorial service for next week sometime will be announced when arrangements are completed.
Rest in peace brother and we will see you on the other side…
