The Pocono Mountain Regional Police Department is trying to reach into the community to create stronger bonds with citizens.

PMRPD has three officers, Dan Smelas, Dave Schmidt and Detective Dan Jones who specialize in community related activities. These officers are available for arranging SWAT Demonstrations, K-9 Demonstrations, fingerprinting children, bicycle safety, stranger danger, GANG awareness, neighborhood watch and crime prevention programs.
