Another officer is a state certified traffic accident reconstructionist. We have a speed monitoring trailer to assist us in identifying possible problem areas that require additional attention.

Our department conducts DARE (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) training in the elementary schools. Students are presented the health effects of using drugs, tobacco, and alcohol. They are instructed on how to deal with and avoid offers of drugs in the future.
We have officers involved with DANET (Allegheny County District Attorney’s Narcotic Enforcement Team), the Pennsylvania Attorney Generals Drug Task Force, and the Allegheny County Narcotics Detectives.
We have our own range master certified by the NRA as a police firearm instructor. He is also a certified instructor in the use of the taser and the police patrol rifle.
