Department receives DOJ Certification
Newberry Township Police have received US Department of Justice Certification for "Safe Policing for Safe Communities!" This is a federal initiative to encourage police agencies across the country to declare best practices in areas of Use of Force & De-escalation, Personnel Standards, and Community Engagement. The PA Chiefs of Police Association is the Pennsylvania authority for this federal certification, and on January 31, 2021, certification was granted to our agency! This benchmark is important to our continuing strives to police in the best, community focused way possible. Attached is the certification letter.
