History

            The Camp Hill Borough Police Safety Officer Program began in 1987.  Determining that there was a need to assist both the Emergency Medical Services and Fire Department, Safety Officers David B. Pepperman and Michael D. Duggan were employed as the Police Department's first Safety Officers.   In 1988, Safety Officer Michael L. Hope joined Safety Officers Pepperman and Duggan, increasing the number of Safety Officers to three.

        Currently the number of Safety Officers remains at three.  Safety Officer Pepperman, Safety Officer Lane P. Pryor joining the Police Department in 1995, and Safety Officer Douglas S. Hockenberry coming on board in 1996.

 

Training

        The Police Department's Safety Officers are cross trained in Police, Emergency Medical Services and Fire Fighting areas of Community Service.  Safety Officers are required to obtain and maintain certification through the Municipal Police Officers' Education and Training Commission, The Pennsylvania Department of Health and numerous Agencies and Departments providing training in Modern Fire Fighting Techniques and Procedures.

 

Responsibilities

        Camp Hill Police Department's Safety Officers are Police Officers that share a joint responsibility in three separate, yet closely related areas of public service to our Community.  They are charged with the responsibility of providing Police Services and enforcing the Laws, Statutes and Ordinances of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and Camp Hill Borough.  In addition, our Safety Officers provide service and assistance to the Emergency Medical Services and Fire Departments when responding to E.M.S. and Fire incidents throughout the Borough of Camp Hill.  To date, the Police Department's Safety Officer Program continues to be a valuable resource to our Borough.
