The Pocono Mountain Regional Police Department was formed in 1994 by joint agreement of the municipalities of Tobyhanna Township and Mount Pocono Borough. Tunkhannock Township joined in 1995 and in 1997 Coolbaugh Township completed the department. The intent of these progressive government leaders in consolidating the personnel and fiscal resources of these founding municipalities was to provide the citizens of this jurisdiction with a police department responsive to the safety programs that assist the citizens, and progressive in crime prevention and traffic safety programs that assist the citizens to maintain a safer, healthier, and more wholesome environment to live in, raise their families, and enjoy a good quality of life.
In order to achieve this level of service, the dedicated personnel of our Department must be persistent in our efforts and perform our duties to the best of our ability and with high esteem for the Department. Some elements of that dedication, pride and spirit are recognized through professional mannerisms, expeditious responsiveness, outstanding investigations, and fair and equitable enforcement of the various laws and ordinances we have sworn to uphold.
No matter what function we perform for the Department, whether it be patrol, criminal investigations, administration, or a combination of all those tasks, we are bound together by our desire to mutually provide the citizens of our jurisdiction the best possible service.
We can be proud of the excellent service we have provided in the past and our goal shall always be a tradition of excellence.
