2017 "Smoke in the Grove" BBQ Contest / First Responder Cup - Thank you to all of the residents that came out to the Spring Grove Park on July 28, 2017 to witness and sample our BBQ wings.  The turn out was amazing; to the point that we ran out of wings!  We apologize to those that didn't get to sample the cuisine but the Borough will remedy the shortage next year!  Our department didn't get the first place trophy (congrats SG Fire) but we didn't come in last either.  We had a blast mingling with the other 11 fire and police units and the VFW and the many great people that stopped by our cooking booth! (pictured from L to R - Ofr. B. Goodling, Sgt. J. Greene, Chief G. Bean, and Ofr. J. Poplin).

Cell Phones for Soldiers Program Makes Another Donation - Thanks to your donations of cell phones, the department was able to donate another 50 phones to this worthwhile program; making the total of over 200 phones.  The phones are disassembled and the parts are sold.  The profits are provided to active duty soldiers in the form of long distant phone credits.

A Word from the Chief

The overall philosophy of the Southwestern Regional Police Department is to provide the most professional police services possible in a fiscally responsible manner. We will achieve this by being innovative and progressive in our approach to solving problems. All employees will be tasked with this responsibility and be given the authority and the tools to accomplish these tasks.

We will not forget that the input of the residents' concerns and desires will guide this department. Being open to new ideas, being responsive to those ideas, and always looking to improve, is ultimately important. By working with residents, business owners, and all others involved in the criminal justice process, our goals are to reduce crime, disorder and to provide a safe community in which to live, work, and play.

“Continuous Improvement is What We Do.”
