  1. 2020 Survey on Enhancement of Public Safety Services

2020 Survey on Enhancement of Public Safety Services

In our continuing mission to engage and partner with the community to deliver the Gold Standard of Public Services, the Township conducted a Community Survey for Public Safety services in November to obtain resident input and feedback about our public safety department and the services it provides. The survey has been completed and was reported to the public and Board of Trustees January 27, 2021. 

Our Public Safety Survey Results & Recommendations Report summarizes the feedback and input received from residents who participated in the survey, including our recommendations for enhancing Pittsfield Township Public Safety Department’s engagement and communication with the community, especially with regard to racial equity and justice. 

A Message from the Director

Welcome to Pittsfield Township’s Public Safety webpage, which has been designed to both inform and engage.

With community engagement as the cornerstone of our work, we have an unwavering commitment to equity, respect, and transparency. Our mission is to Set the Gold Standard in Public Service while maintaining peace and supporting the wellbeing of all in Pittsfield Township.

 We do not accomplish our work alone but, rather, rely on our strong partnerships with Pittsfield Township residents and businesses along with first responders in area municipalities and regional stakeholders. We work together, as a team, to seek out new opportunities to grow and improve, both individually and organizationally, and honestly and openly face the challenges that test our abilities and commitment, with our compassion, dedication and professionalism ever-present and intact to ensure that we succeed.

 To that end, we recently completed a community survey to further enhance our work around social justice as we continue building trust and accountability with and across our community.

 It is our privilege to work with and serve everyone in our diverse and vibrant community of Pittsfield Township.

Matt Harshberger, Director of Public Safety


Proudly serving the community with honesty, integrity, and professional excellence.
