PATROL DIVISION/SPECIAL RESPONSE UNIT

The patrol division is comprised of twenty officers, including four supervisors. Patrol officers are organized into four squads and provide police protection to the citizens of Lower Moreland twenty-four hours a day, three hundred and sixty-five days a year. The patrol division is responsible for emergency response to 9-1-1 calls, traffic enforcement, accident investigation and uniformed patrol duties.

In January of 2020, we implemented a new unit consisting of two officers, called the Special Response Unit. Our special response officers put their effort towards identifying crime patterns (to include DUI’s and Traffic Enforcement), common problem areas and identifying in progress property crimes. They also focus on evening community event coverages. These studies help understand where the problems lie and how we can better help our residents.
