The City of Latrobe Police Department.

Welcome to the official website of the City of Latrobe Police Department! We are devoted to ensuring the safety of our community by employing professional, highly trained officers who are committed to community policing and proactive law enforcement.


A Journey into History

We can see from history that the beginnings of law enforcement in our community has developed throughout time. In the early 1800s, sheriffs were the sole defenders of communal safety. But it wasn't until 1854, with the official establishment of the Borough, that we had our very own police department.


Meet Our Staff

The City of Latrobe Police Department now has 14 devoted officers. The Chief of Police, a Captain, a Detective Sergeant, two Patrol Sergeants (one of whom is a K-9 officer), two Detectives (one specialized in juvenile problems), a Community Service Officer, and ten Patrol Officers comprise our team. We are prepared to confront a wide range of issues, from drug-related crime to identity theft, computer crimes, and the annual service demands of our 9,000-person densely populated and professional community.


 A Proactive Strategy

We don't only respond to crime at the City of Latrobe Police Department; we actively connect with the community. Our initiatives are data-driven and evolve in response to crime figures and public demands. We provide 24-hour patrol services, and our officers have sophisticated investigation and tactical skills.


Beyond Law Enforcement

Our dedication extends beyond enforcement. We offer educational and preventative initiatives, as well as specialized services and a full spectrum of community police services. We are not simply police; we are your neighbors, here to meet the specific needs of our thriving community.


Drug take-back

For the disposal of outdated and unwanted pharmaceuticals, a drug take-back box is situated in the Independence Health System, Latrobe Hospital Emergency Room. 


We work together with our community to make Latrobe a safer and better place to live.
