Message from the Chief


On behalf of the dedicated men and women of the Newtown Township Police Department, welcome to the Crime Watch website. We are pleased to participate in this program that has been introduced and endorsed by the Bucks County District Attorney, Matthew Weintraub.

Our primary mission is to fight crime, including the fear of crime, preserve peace & order within the community through conflict management and to enforce the law while ensuring the constitutional rights of all people. Community partnerships and collaboration are key elements of our success. Department members are approachable and open to comments and discussion about our community and our policing efforts.

Our Police Officers and staff are highly trained to deliver professional police services to our residents and visitors. If we can’t directly resolve an issue, we will make the appropriate referrals. Thank you for being part of our team!

Please utilize this information responsibly, and report any suspicious or criminal activity.

John L. Hearn
Chief of Police
