With so many cars on the road, the department investigates several hundred traffic incidents each year. To prevent accidents and their effects, Upper Providence police enforce moving violations and seat belt use.
The department also focuses very seriously on domestic violence issues and strictly enforces domestic violence laws. Police also direct victims to the right places for assistance and services.
Emergency Response (SWAT)
The police department participates in the Montgomery County West SWAT team, a regional tactical team (SWAT), that is trained and equipped to respond to life-threatening situations.
Child Passenger Safety Technicians
The Upper Providence Township Police Department offers the opportunity for parents to get one-on-one personalized instruction on how to properly use their child’s car seat by a Nationally Registered and Certified Child Passenger Safety Technician (CPST). We put our knowledge to work through a variety of activities, including community presentations and/or child safety seat checks where parents and caregivers receive education and hands-on assistance with the proper use of child restraint systems and seat belts. A majority of parents (over 70%) still misuse their child restraints and need help to get it right.
