About The Department
The Findlay Township Police Department is led by Chief John Hart, and consists of 20 full-time officers and 8 full-time dispatchers.
The department is staffed 24 hours a day, and, in addition to basic patrol and emergency response, the officers serve in several additional capacities, including a K-9 officer, a full-time detective and two assistant investigators, two officers trained to conduct commercial truck inspections, two officers assigned to the SHACOG CIRT Team, two officers assigned to the SHACOG Support Team, and a School Resource Officer assigned to Wilson Elementary School in the West Allegheny School District.
The Findlay Township Police Department undergoes an annual web-based assessment every November to ensure that the department is meeting the standards set forth by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA). During the fourth year of the assessment, the department undergoes a final web-based assessment in May and then a final on-site assessment in July.
Part of this process involves a public portal to allow community input. The purpose of this public portal is to receive comments regarding an agency's compliance with with CALEA standards, engagement in the service community, delivery of public safety services, and overall candidacy for accredited status. These comments can be in the form of commendations or concerns. The overall intent of the accreditation process is to provide the participating agency with information to support continuous improvement, as well as foster the pursuit of professional excellence.
IMPORTANT: CALEA is not an investigatory body and subsequently the public portal should not be used to submit information for such purposes. Additionally, there will be no response other than acknowledgement to submissions; however, the information will be considered in context to its relevancy to compliance with standards of the tenets of CALEA accreditation.
Additionally, the Findlay Township Police Department conducts business and neighborhood watch programs, a safe house program, vacation home checks, home security surveys, a child safety seat inspection program, scouting liaison activities, fingerprinting services for citizens and truck safety inspections. The department also maintains a special needs database to assist persons with special needs during power outages, weather emergencies or other emergency management situations.
