In an emergency call 911!

The New Sewickley Township Police Department is proud to announce that we have become the first Accredited Law Enforcement Agency in Beaver County.  On Tuesday August 4, 2020 members of the police department attended a meeting with the Pennsylvania Chief’s of Police and the Pennsylvania Law Enforcement Accreditation Board.  The members of the police department have worked long and hard to meet the standards of policing which are required for a law enforcement agency to be approved and accredited.  Pictured below with the certification of accreditation are Township Supervisor Doug Martin, Chief Ronald Leindecker, Sergeant Timothy Gatehouse, Sergeant Daniel Swab, and Corporal Gregory Carney.  You can find out more about Accreditation by clicking on the accreditation tab on the left side of the page.

The New Sewickley Township Police Department is proud to announce several promotions and the hiring of two new police officers.  Corporal Timothy Gatehouse has been promoted to the rank of Sergeant.  Corporal Daniel Swab has been promoted to the rank of Sergeant.  Patrolman Timothy Sovich has been promoted to the rank of Corporal.  Detective Gregory Carney has been promoted to the rank or Corporal.  Part-time Patrolman Ethan Fuchs and Part-time Patrolman Darryl Webb have been hired by the department.  All of these officers were sworn in by Beaver County District Attorney David Lozier at a public meeting held on Tuesday August 4, 2020.  Please congratulate each of these officers on the accomplishment they have attained.

Effective immediately, any person entering the New Sewickley Township Police Department is required to wear a face mask which covers their mouth and nose as well as gloves.  Anyone entering the police department will also have their temperature taken.  If you have a temperature of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher, you will not be permitted to enter the police department. 

     During the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic, the New Sewickley Township Police Department will continue to answer all emergency and 911 calls as we normally would.  All non-emergency calls will be evaluated on a case by case basis to determine the most effective and safe way to handle each call.  You may be receiving telephone calls from the officers regarding non-emergency complaints as we attempt to practice social distancing as much as we can while performing our duties.

      Please review this updated website as we now offer online reporting of non-emergency calls, vacation watches, identity thefts, and related types of calls for service.  We ask that all residents continue to practice social distancing.  We have included resources and information regarding the Stay At Home orders and COVID-19 information.  We will be working on a daily basis to update this as more information becomes available to us.

Pennsylvania Law Enforcement Accreditation 

The New Sewickley Township Police Department has become the first Accredited police department in Beaver County.

Did you know that there are approximately 1,120 Law Enforcement Agencies in Pennsylvania?  Of those 1,120 agencies, approximately 10 % or only 120 agencies meet the Pennsylvania Chief’s Of Police Standards for Professional Law Enforcement practices.   Obtaining the approved accredited status does not simply mean that a department has policies and procedures which meet the standards.  The agency must also prove that they meet and practice these standards on a daily basis.

WHAT IS ACCREDITATION???

 The Pennsylvania Chiefs of Police Association introduced the Pennsylvania Law Enforcement Accreditation Program to the Commonwealth in July 2001.  Since then, over 300 agencies have enrolled and 120 agencies currently have attained accredited status.

Accreditation is a progressive and time-proven way of helping institutions evaluate and improve their overall performance. The cornerstone of this strategy lies in the promulgation of standards containing a clear statement of professional objectives. Participating administrators then conduct a thorough analysis to determine how existing operations can be adapted to meet these objectives. When the procedures are in place, a team of independent professionals is assigned to verify that all applicable standards have been successfully implemented. The process culminates with a decision by an authoritative body that the institution is worthy of accreditation.

The Pennsylvania Law Enforcement Accreditation Program was designed and developed by professional law enforcement executives to provide a reasonable and cost effective plan for the professionalization of law enforcement agencies within the Commonwealth. The underlying philosophy of the program is to have a user-friendly undertaking for the departments that will result in a “success” oriented outcome.

The Benefits?

  • Reduces agency risk and exposure to lawsuits

  • Decreases some liability insurance expenditures
