Chief's Message

As Chief of Police, please allow me to welcome you to the Forks Township Police Department's website! The site has been and is continuing to be redesigned with the goal of providing a better, more useful resource for our citizens.

In choosing the new, improved look of our website, we were driven by our steadfast goal of State Accreditation, "Building a Department of Pride and Professionalism." Here at the Forks Township Police Department, our officers are committed to providing the highest level of service to our citizens and our community.

We continually strive to keep our neighborhoods safe through effective and professional law enforcement as well as preventing crimes before they occur. The Department offers a full spectrum of modern police services, including preventative patrol, traffic enforcement, criminal investigation, and various community policing activities.

Moreover, the Forks Township Police Department is deeply committed to working with its residents, businesses, and institutions to form truly effective police-community partnerships. This is especially true with regard to the youth of our community. FTPD's involvement in programs like G.R.E.A.T, Citizen's Police Academy, Youth Police Academy, Bicycle Safety and Rodeo, and the soon to come Volunteers in Police Services, reflect our goal of reducing crime and violence and preventing substance abuse among our young people.

I sincerely hope you'll find our website a valuable resource in the ongoing partnership between the Police Department and its citizens.

Chief Gregory F. Dorney
