The Castle Shannon Police Department



The Castle Shannon Police Department Fleet
The Castle Shannon Police Department maintains a diverse fleet of police vehicles from heavy-duty police bicycles to a military issue, four-wheel drive unit. Most of the vehicles have a specific purpose.

The marked police sedans are used for patrol and are outfitted with cameras and computers along with equipment needed for emergencies and security.

The four-wheel drive GMC is the Truck Safety Enforcement Unit. This unit conducts safety inspections on trucks from light-weight trucks to tractor trailers and issues citations for safety violations.

Officers use the bicycles for patrol in business sections of the borough as well as for spot patrol in residential areas. The K-9 Unit uses one of the police sedan units that is equipped with a modern kennel and carries all equipment needed for a search.

All three sedans, the GMC, the bicycles and K-9 Unit (including the Xato the K9), were funded through state grant money by now Congressman Murphy and our recent legislator Ralph Kaiser.

Government grant funding also helped to equip each vehicle with a camera and a computer. The computers are capable of sending e-mail to officers as well as retrieving driver and vehicle information. They are also capable of searching for information on wanted persons and many similar searches for information.
