Chief's Message

It’s no secret that law enforcement is a profession fraught with danger, uncertainty, and challenge. Most police departments face similar issues, regardless of size or location, but each also deals with variables unique to their jurisdictions and service populations. The success of any police department to effectively deal with these challenges rests in their ability to involve the community in crime prevention, public education, and overall awareness.

The Glassport Police Department is grateful for the relationships it maintains with residents, business owners, and visitors. Our philosophy of true community policing and citizen involvement has been well-received by those we serve and protect. Such benefits would not be possible without the combined efforts and cooperation of the police and the public they serve.

In the years to come, we will continue to nurture the powerful relationships we’ve built with the people of Glassport. Our mission statement will drive us to place an even greater focus on implementing the recognized, best practices of our profession. We will work diligently to create new and meaningful community partnerships. The agency’s core values will guide the behavior of each and every officer, while our commitment to our oaths keep us on a clear path of public service.
