Terbush1b-130Fellow Georgetown police officers and City of Georgetown employees marked the 21-year career of Lt. Todd Terbush last week. Lt. Terbush retired from the police department earlier this month.

Lt. Terbush joined the police department in 1991. He promoted to sergeant in 1998. Due to his prior experience working with troubled youth, he served as a youth services sergeant. He also worked as a DARE officer in the Georgetown schools working to prevent drug and alcohol use among students.

Lt. Terbush promoted to lieutenant in 2001 and served in the patrol, professional standards, and criminal investigation divisions. For the last few years, Lt. Terbush has served as the community resources lieutenant and as the public information officer who is the media liaison for the police department.

In his role as community resources lieutenant, Lt. Terbush worked closely with the volunteers who run the police department’s Blue Santa program, which provides toys to children at Christmas time.

He also served on the police department clown team that visited schools with clowns from the fire department to teach messages about home safety and fire prevention.

“Todd has been an integral part of the organization for over two decades,” says Police Chief Wayne Nero. “He has a heart for our profession and for the service of our community. He will be missed. We wish him well in the next chapter of his life.”

Now that he is retired, Lt. Terbush plans to open a shop that sells specialty teas. He is developing his products and marketing ideas and plans to open later this year. He lives in Georgetown with his wife and family.
