City of Latrobe Police Department
The Latrobe Police Department is a modern showcase of law enforcement exclusives, as well as, a traditional anchor of police protection. Complemented by a full roster of officers ( including 1 chief and 3 sergeants and 9 patrolman) providing 24 hour protection, the department utilizes a fleet of vehicles for patrol. These include 3 marked polive cruisers, an unmarked suv utility vehicle, a tactical van, an all terrain vehicle--quad, and a bicycle unit consisting of three marked police bicycles.
Cognizant of education awareness, the department has implemented a "Citizens Police Academy" and boasts an alumni of 100 graduates, a civilian ride-along, student leadership program, university internships, and drug awareness programs in the schools and the community. The philosophy of the department is one of "Community Policing", where the goal is to get the community active in partnering with the police department to solve crime and examine quality of life issues.
Other programs the department has started include a Parental Support Group for parents who are having difficulty dealing with their child's drug or alcohol addiction. Hosted by a psychologist, the group meets once a month at Latrobe City Hall and there is no charge. Another program is the Alzheimers Program where free ID bracelets or necklaces are give to those families with alzheimers patients in their family.
The police department does a full host of safety related presentations, drug programs and will provide a tour for your group of the police station.
