I am pleased to acknowledge the selection of CIVIL PROCESS CLERK ERIKA ROMANOWSKI as Employee of the Month for JUNE 2013.
As employees are aware, the Sheriff’s Office’s Firearms Division has experienced a substantial and consistent upsurge in firearms applications since December of last year. The Office’s receipt of roughly 200 applications a day, intensified by a collective increase in applications being filed across the state of Pennsylvania, has made it challenging to keep paces with this tremendous workload. Moreover, state mandate requires that the Office strive to process applications within 45 days of receipt, making operations in the Firearms Division remarkably demanding.
Erika Romanowski, who is currently assigned to the Civil Process Division, is commended for personally devoting herself to addressing the backlog of firearms applications. She recently manned three telephone lines while performing inquiries through the Pennsylvania Instant Check System resulting in the completion of over 200 background checks within six hours’ time. In addition, Ms. Romanowski on a daily basis informs her supervisors that she is available to complete firearms-related tasks amid her primary assignments at the front counter.
Erika is commended for her diligence and willingness to assist co-workers in jobs critical to the functioning of this Office and for dedicating herself to complete assignments exceeding that of her regular prescribed duties.
In recognition, Erika will be granted one full day off work, as long as no overtime is incurred. Please join me in congratulating Erika in this worthy accomplishment.
