Citizens Police Academy
Future Citizen's Police Academies will be posted here.
The department currently utilizes several different technologies to attempt to keep township residents and visitors informed of public safety situations and community events. Among these services are Nixle, Facebook, and Twitter.
Nixle is used to deliver trustworthy and important neighborhood-level public safety notifications instantly. Information is sent to you by cell phone text message. There is NO spam or advertising. Nixle is completely free (although standard text message rates apply for cell phone subscribers who do not have text plans with their cell phone providers).
The service is simple to use, reliable and trusted. Register now and learn more at www.nixle.com. We would ask you to forward this information to 5 of your neighbors or friends in the community and recommend that they also register to receive public safety information.
Facebook and Twitter allow us to deliver additional information to township residents and visitors beyond public safety alerts. Through these additional services, we can provide timely notifications and announcements regarding community events, traffic advisories, and enforcement efforts.
Facebook and Twitter accounts are free, so there is no cost to interested residents and visitors who would like to receive as much information as possible from the department.
Citizen Complaints and Commendations
The Muhlenberg Township Police Department welcomes responsible citizen’s comments concerning the quality of service provided by the department and its employees to the community.
Positive comments, criticisms, or complaints may be brought to the attention of any employee or directed to the Chief of Police, the Lieutenant, or a shift supervisor.
Inquiries concerning policy, procedure, or tactics used by the department will be addressed by a shift supervisor.
Formal or informal complaints against the department or any employee will be reviewed by the Chief of Police and investigated through a regulated, impartial, and confidential internal investigation process, the outcome of which will be provided to the citizen in writing by the Chief of Police.
A form is available on which concerns, complaints, or commendations can be addressed, click here for the form. You can also file your form online. Citizens can choose to remain anonymous on complaint forms; however, a full investigation cannot be conducted if an investigator cannot contact the complainant. Additionally, a citizen can opt to provide their complaint or commendation information verbally.
