Patrol Division

The backbone of the Buckingham Township Police Department is the Patrol Division. It is made up of the uniformed members who you see patrolling your neighborhoods every day. They have all taken a solemn oath and are sworn to protect your lives and your property, to maintain the peace and good order, to enforce the law, and to promote a general feeling of wellbeing and confidence in your government. The fourteen members of the patrol division maintain a constant vigil. Day or night, while you are at work or play, awake or asleep, the Buckingham Township Police Department Patrol Division is on the job and only a 9-1-1 call away.
