MCCONNELSVILLE, Ohio (WTAP) Peoples Bank and TheNewsCenter are honoring everyday hometown heroes, and we're excited to announce August's Hometown Spotlight Hero is Douglas McGrath.
McGrath is a patrolman with the McConnelsville Police Department.
He's been serving the public, and keeping the community safe for nearly thirty years.
McGrath says being a policeman was something he realized he wanted to do at a young age.
Douglas Mcgath, a patrolman for the McConnelsville Police Department, said, "When I was sixteen I was in the Boy Scouts, and I achieved the rank of Eagle Scout, and I actually done a finger printing small children as my project, and I worked with the local sheriff's office at the time, and we finger printed little children in case they become loss or missing.
So, I guess things started really culminating at that point."
McGrath thanks his family, friends, and the community for their support.
