Johnstown City Manager Karl Kilduff asked Police Chief Robert Huntley to arrange the tests with the state health department. Officers also would be tested by an outside agency. Kilduff said he did not know when the tests would be given. “It’s done,” Angelo Cancelliere, president of the police union’s Johnstown chapter, said. “We believe we have a fair and equitable policy for everyone.” Tests for the city’s 49 officers and chief will screen for marijuana, cocaine, opiates, PCP and barbiturates among other drugs. Anyone testing positive will be fired immediately. All members of the police force also will be tested for alcohol. Anyone with a blood-alcohol content of 0.04 percent or higher will be suspended for 20 days without pay. A second offense will result in termination. The legal limit for driving in Pennsylvania is 0.10 percent.
