2017 - Year in Review


The year 2017 was a busy year for the Borough of Alburtis Police Department.  The police department saw some historic records in number of incidents (1,631 incidents) and traffic citations.  The police department issued 978 traffic citations during the course of the year, the previous high was in 2012 when the department issued 158 traffic citations.  The drastic increase in traffic citations was primarily due to tractor trailers that were over width/length traveling off their designated routes and into the borough.  The 978 traffic citations resulted in over $216,000 in fines being issued and other costs (fees, EMS Fund, etc.) assigned to the traffic citations totaling over $101,000.  

The department saw the departure of Senior Patrol Officer Cory Fluck, Officer Alexander Smith, and Officer Joseph Britt for other job opportunities and the retirement of Sergeant Jay Ruff.  Officers Troy Leonard and Broc Termini were hired in December 2017 to help fill the void.

The Alburtis Police Officers' Association conducted contract negotiations with the Borough of Alburtis beginning in June 2017.  Neither party were able to compromise on a contract and the contract went to arbitration in October 2017.  The arbitrators' decision should be announced in early 2018.

The police department conducted a First Responder/Military Appreciation Day, a Hawaiian Luau, and the National Night Out Event at the Alburtis Area Community Center's Pool as part of their continued summer Crime Prevention Program.  For safety the police department distributed over 650 glowsticks to students at the Alburtis Elementary School and various trick-or-treaters for Halloween.

The Borough of Alburtis Police Department looks forward to serving the community in 2018 and hopes everyone has a safe and healthy year.
