Upper Darby Police generally have a very good relationship with the communities they serve. This has shocked Township officials and they vow to conduct a thorough investigation quickly.

UPPER DARBY, Pennsylvania (WPVI) -- The Upper Darby Township mayor has fired an officer accused of posting a racist comment on social media.

Officer Jonathan Resinski was terminated on Tuesday after an internal investigation.

There were multiple protests calling on the township to take action.

Resinski allegedly posted under a pseudonym.

In her letter of dismissal, Mayor Barbarann Keffer says this not a police training issue, alleging that Resinski has failed to acknowledge any wrongdoing.
