The police department is divided into three Divisions: the Patrol Division, the Criminal Investigation Division and the Staff Services Division.

The Patrol Division is responsible for primary service delivery through the Division’s four uniformed platoons.  The platoons consist of five or six officers supervised by a Sergeant/OIC.  The platoon personnel work a rotating twelve-hour shift.  Officers work 2 to 3 twelve-hour days and then have two to three days off. Included in the uniformed platoons, are the K9 officer, bike patrol officers, motor carrier safety officer,  SERT officers, and the School Resource Officer.  

The Criminal Investigation Division is responsible for the follow-up investigation of crimes committed in East Hempfield Township.  The Division is comprised of a Sergeant and three detectives. The primary function of the detective is to apprehend those offenders who escape arrest by the patrol division.  Although our detectives are considered to be “generalists” and cases are assigned on an equitable basis, certain crimes are assigned to detectives who specialize in specific areas.

The Staff Services Division provides support services for the other functions of the police department. In addition to maintaining criminal history information, the staff records and maintains offense and accident  reports, traffic citations, parking tickets and compiles the statistical information reported under the Uniform Crime Report. Staff also performs data entry and dispatching duties.


The main goal of the police department is to create and maintain a safe, secure environment for all East Hempfield Township's citizens. We strive to accomplish this goal through proactive community programs designed to prevent crime as well as efficient, thorough investigations of crimes committed.
