Chief's Message

Message from the Chief of Police:

Welcome to the Swatara Township Police Department. I encourage you to visit our site regularly.

The goal of our web site is to keep you informed of current events in our Township and to educate you about our department and the law enforcement services we provide.  Our overriding purpose for providing you this information is to solicit your help to fight crime and keep our community safe.

The mission of the Swatara Township Police Department is to provide professional police services to citizens and visitors of Swatara Township.  At all times, the members of the Swatara Township Police Department shall epitomize the core values of our agency: duty, honor, courage, integrity, caring, respect and loyalty.  We will at all times live up to the Latin motto emblazoned below the Swatara Township Coat of Arms on our shoulder patch which reads: “Servitute Clarior” which translates as “more illustrious by service”.

As always, if you have questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to contact me or any member of our Department.  We stand ready to assist you.

Yours in Service,

Chief of Police

Darrell R. Reider
