Chief John Mackey
As Chief of Police of the Municipality of Bethel Park, I want to welcome you to the Website. It is my hope that this site will provide our residents with a valuable resource for information about the police department.
The Police Department consists of 35 full time police officers, 4 emergency dispatchers, a secretary and a records clerk. The Police Department is responsible for 24-hour community wide law enforcement and responds to all requests for emergency services. The Police Department responds to an estimated (14,000) calls for service per year.
The 35 sworn officers include the Chief of Police, 1 Lieutenant, 6 patrol sergeants, 20 patrol officers, 1 traffic sergeant, 2 traffic officers, 3 Investigators, and 1 Crime Prevention /Community Resource officer.
The Department has the following divisions for more effective and specialized Law Enforcement in the Community: Patrol Division, Traffic Division, Investigations, Crime Prevention/Community Resource Division, Bike Patrol, and School Resource Officer Division.
I believe the men and women of the Bethel Park Police Department are its most valuable asset and the essential ingredient to effectively and efficiently accomplish the police mission.
