Officer Wertz was killed in the line of duty in August, 2006. He was a member of the Reading City Police Department, assigned to the PA State Police Central Auto Theft Task Force. While working an auto theft detail in Reading, Officer Wertz was shot and killed. In recognition that law enforcement remains a dangerous job, and auto theft cases are no exception, the Pennsylvania Auto Theft Prevention Authority annually grants the “Scott A. Wertz Investigator of the Year” award to a police investigator who has distinguished himself in the area of auto theft cases. There are several annual events honoring the life of Officer Wertz. The proceeds from these events benefit the Officer Scott A. Wertz Memorial Scholarship Fund, which grants scholarships to Berks County students to defray costs for higher education.
