Police Department

Mission Statement

The mission of the Kingston Township Police Department is to provide leadership to promote individual responsibility and a commitment to improving the community’s quality of life through crime control and public safety while serving all people with fairness and respect. 


The Kingston Township Police Department has a designated “Safe Exchange Zone”, joining a growing number of agencies nationwide looking to help people safely carry out e-sales, custody exchanges and other transactions.

The zone, marked by a sign, is set up in the Kingston Township Police Department parking lot off of East Center Street.  The spot is under 24 hr. surveillance courtesy of video cameras outside the department.

Creating a designated zone raises awareness of the option and helps ensure a meeting is caught on camera.  Kingston Township’s surveillance cameras have been adjusted to ensure its safe exchange zone is captured.

Child Passenger Safety Technician Certification

Kingston Township Police have police officers certified in Child Passenger Safety Technician (CPST). The National Child Passenger Safety Training Program, which is partners with The National Child Passenger Safety Board, The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Safe Kids Worldwide, provided the training to the officers.

As CPST’s, the officers will put their knowledge to work through a variety of activities, including child safety seat checks where parents and caregivers receive education and hands-on assistance with the proper use of child restraint systems and safety belts.

If you are a resident of Kingston Township and need assistance with a child restraint, call the Kingston Township Police Department at 570-696-1175 and schedule an appointment. Also, look for scheduled child safety seat checks in the near future.
