 Citizen Complaint Procedure

The Beaver Police Department provides police service to our community. The Department has trained its personnel to provide consistent and professional service. As a member of our community, you can assist the Department in ensuring that this level of service maintains that high level of expectation. We encourage your participation. We want you to give us information when you observe actions by the Police Department or individual police employees which you believe needs our attention. These can be both those actions which you find rewarding and those you might believe are not at an acceptable level of professional police service.

You may report your observations in person, by letter, by telephone, by email or by utilizing the online form found on this website. The Police Department does accept anonymous information, but we would prefer that you provide us with your identity. Anonymous reports are investigated only to the extent which the information allows: which may not be satisfactory to you or the Department.

Citizens, such as you, are valuable eyes and ears for our community and it’s Police Department. We respect your input, both good and bad. Whenever you see police actions which you believe we should be aware of, please report those to us. The “Complaint Procedure Info” sheet provides more information to aid you in making your decision as to whether to file a complaint.

 C.A.T. Registration

It is the policy of the Beaver Police Department to work closely with the community in order to combat the problem of motor vehicle theft in Beaver Township. The Catch Auto Thieves (CAT) Program provides a way for residents of Beaver Township to voluntarily register their motor vehicles with the Beaver Police Department as a means of detecting and deterring motor vehicle thefts by pre-authorizing investigative stops of their registered vehicles if observed being operated between the hours of 1:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m.

Voluntary Participation – Motor vehicle owners who reside in Beaver Township may voluntarily participate in the CAT Program by registering their motor vehicles with the Beaver Police Department’s Administrative Assistant.

All required identifying information on the registered owners, motor vehicles, and authorized drivers must be completed on the CAT Program application form. In addition, the registered owners must agree and attest to the rules governing the program and the statement of consent to stop the motor vehicle(s) without separate probable cause or reasonable suspicion if they are found being operated between the hours of 1:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m. on any day of the week.

Upon receipt, verification, and approval of the completed application and consent forms, the Administrative Assistant will issue a standard, serialized CAT Program decal to be affixed to the outside of the lower left corner of the rear window of each registered motor vehicle.
