The Washington Township Police Department began providing police coverage to the communities of Washington Borough in August 2009 and Oxford Township in February 2010.  The Washington Township Police Department is staffed with highly qualified and dedicated officers who provide the highest level of service at a cost effective price to all of the municipalities they serve.

The Washington Township Police Department has established Facebook and Twitter accounts in order to provide our residents with more timely information.  Community members can receive updates on traffic, public safety concerns and community events.

The agency provides many services: Arson Investigation, Community Watch, Crime Prevention, Criminal Investigations, D.A.R.E., K-9 and Traffic Safety which are areas that officers receive specialized training in.  There are also several officers trained as Emergency Medical Technicians (since they arrive first on the scene of medical emergencies they are able to provide basic life support until the emergency squad arrives).  The Washington Township Police Department recently became the first police department in Warren County to have implemented the use of School Resource Officers.
