Pennsylvania STATE POLICE

Since our inception in 1905, the Pennsylvania State Police has been dedicated to serving the public. It is our desire to improve our ability to reach citizens by using technology to increase the speed, accuracy and availability of police and safety related information. Our Department’s enlisted and civilian personnel are committed to providing world class service to our police partners and the citizens of the Commonwealth. We will accomplish this while remaining focused on our Core Purpose: To seek justice, preserve peace, and improve the quality of life for all.



National Child Passenger Safety Week -  The Department will be participating in National Child Passenger Safety Week, from Sunday, September 18, 2016, through Saturday, September 24, 2016.  Additionally, Saturday, September 24, 2016, has been designated as “National Seat Check Saturday.”  Traffic crashes are among the leading causes of death in Pennsylvania.  Educating the public about the proper use of child safety seats in motor vehicles plays an important role in saving lives.

In support of this campaign, Troops A through R will be conducting child passenger safety seat check events during National Child Passenger Safety Week.  Additionally, members will be conducting concentrated enforcement of seat belt and child passenger restraint violations throughout the campaign period.  The Pennsylvania Traffic Injury Prevention Project and Safe Kids Pennsylvania, as well as numerous municipal police agencies throughout the Commonwealth will also be participating in various enforcement and educational events during National Child Passenger Safety Week.
