The Pennsylvania Chiefs of Police Association introduced the Pennsylvania Law Enforcement Accreditation Program to the Commonwealth in July of 2001. Since then, of the more than 1,200 police departments and agencies throughout the Commonwealth, over 260 have enrolled. In February, 2008, the Camp Hill Borough Police Department became the 49th agency in Pennsylvania to reach Accreditation Status, and in January, 2011 the department  went through the re-accreditation process and retained Accreditation through the Pennsylvania Chief’s of Police Association.

 

The Accreditation Program is a progressive and time-proven way of helping police departments and agencies evaluate and improve their overall performance.  The cornerstone of this strategy is in the promulgation of standards containing a clear statement of professional objectives.  Participating administrators then conduct a thorough analysis to determine how existing operations can be adapted to meet these objectives.  When these improved procedures are in place, a team of independent professionals is assigned to verify that all applicable standards have been successfully implemented.  The process culminates with a decision by an authoritative body that the department or agency is worthy of accreditation.

Special thanks go to Administrative Assistant Donna K. Hope and Chief
Douglas S. Hockenberry who acted as Co-Accreditation Managers during the multi-year accreditation process.

Changes Affecting Graduated Driver Licensing
and Passenger Restraint Laws


In an effort to enhance safety on Pennsylvania roads, Governor Corbett and the Legislature
have agreed on changes to the Vehicle Code involving graduated driver licensing requirements,
passenger restrictions for junior drivers and passenger restraint laws.
The new rules in Act 81 of 2011 take effect on Dec. 24, 2011.
The changes to the law were initiated to help junior drivers receive more comprehensive training,
ease young driver distractions through limiting the number of passengers they may carry
and improve general highway safety through improvements to passenger restraint laws.

Act 81 - New Teen Driving Law

 

Drive Safe PA

                                                  We’re Tough On Aggressive Drivers! 


The "Drive Safe PA Program" is offered to police departments through the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, the North Central Highway Safety Network Center for Traffic Safety, and the South Central Pennsylvania Highway Safety Program. 

For participating police departments, the “Drive Safe PA Program” offers additional funding to conduct enforcement activities, targeting “Aggressive Driving” and Seat Belt and Child Passenger Safety Programs, during specific time periods throughout the year on pre-determined sections of roadways.   

 Again, in 2012 the Camp Hill Borough Police Department was invited to participate in these programs.  In an overall effort to make our roadways
safer for everyone, Camp Hill Police Officers working these programs made a total of: 449 Contacts / Stops resulting in 484 Traffic Citations / Arrests In 2012
