The Township of Spring Police Department has been at the service of the Spring Township community for more than 75 years, having been established in 1938. The Department has seen a number of changes over the 75+ years of its existence, especially in the field of technology; however, our mission has remained the same . . . we are "Proudly Serving the Community".
The Department holds a number of community relations events throughout the year such as the annual National Night Out event in early August at the Lincoln Park Pool. In the Fall, the Department, in conjunction with the Wyomissing and West Reading Police Departments, hold a Citizens Police Academy. Various groups such as the Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts take tours of our facility and meet officers.
The Department makes every effort to handle calls for service from our community in a timely and professional manner. To help assure what we are doing meets standards for professionalism, the Department enrolled in the Pennsylvania Law Enforcement Accreditation Commission's accreditation program and became only the 36th police agency in the Commonwealth to earn this distinction in March 2006. We were re-accredited in 2009, 2012, and 2015 and will be assessed again in 2018 to prove our commitment to professionalism.
On behalf of the officers of the Township of Spring Police Department, I would like to offer my sincere thanks to our citizens for their confidence in our ability to serve this community. With their continued support and assistance, we look forward to continuing to improve upon our citizen's quality of life and to work diligently toward the reduction of crime in our community.
