West View Borough Police take pride and honor in serving the members of the community and visitors passing through. We have adopted the Community Oriented Policing structure many years ago and it has proven very successful.
Two police officers are on duty at all times with their primary duties being to patrol the streets of the borough, enforcing laws and ordinances, and assisting residents as needed. The police department serves as a liaison between the residents and Borough Council, sharing information and concerns brought to our attention.
All calls for assistance, emergency, and non-emergency are handled through the Northwest Regional Communications Center, who has the responsibility of receiving calls and dispatching officers as needed.
The police department maintains four police cars and one Harley Davidson Motorcycle. In addition to motorized vehicles you will see officers on foot patrol at times promoting safe shopping in West View Plaza or our Business District.
Several officers are trained in special duties such as Crime Watch, DARE, crime scene investigator, fingerprinting, Accident Reconstruction, and Drug Investigators.
Our officers investigate all crimes that occur in West View. Only those requiring extensive investigations or resources beyond our means are referred to outside agencies such as the Allegheny County Police.
