Pine Township Police Department

For the next decade, the force grew along with our region’s population. It became apparent that a long-term solution was needed to meet the ever-increasing needs of the residents of Pine Township. The idea for a joint police force is credited to then Police Chief Richard Baer, whose foresight had brought about an effective solution to carry Pine Township and its neighboring municipalities into the 21st century.
