The Donald J. Guthrie
Award, named in honor
of the first Administrator

2017 Donald J. Guthrie Award Recipient... Phillip F. Pisani,
Director, Department of Diagnostic Services, Delaware
County. Presented by Honorable Wilden Horace Davis.

improve the quality of life for the citizens of Delaware County
by assuring a safer community in which to live and raise
their families. The department promotes a positive behavioral

Thirty-Second Judicial District.
A review of the initiatives that feed back into the primary
purpose of a trial bench... "The courts have conducted two
significantly successful multi-discipline summits, one on the
opioid crisis and the other on mental health. I am grateful
to Judges Dozor, Capuzzi and Nichols and Michael Raith,
Danielle DiMatteo, and Phil Pisani for their help and support in
making these summits great successes and for spearheading the
process of creating specialty courts to deal with these issues."
- Judge Chad F. Kenney
