Rochester Township Police Join Beaver Valley Regional Police Department

At the August 3rd meeting, the Rochester Township Board of Commissioners voted to join the Beaver Valley Regional Police Department. The Board has been considering regionalization for quite some time and they feel this is in the best interest of the community. The decision will have multiple benefits for the community and it will also be safer for the officers by allowing there to be multiple officers on duty each shift. The expected regionalization date is September 1, 2023. Our current full-time officers will be full-time with the Beaver Valley Regional Police Department.
