We Need Your Help! The Moon Township Police Department is investigating two robberies that occurred at the Unimart located at 1300 Coraopolis Heights Rd., Moon Township, PA. The first robbery occurred on Monday 3-5-18 at approximately 1:41 PM. The second occurred on 03-9-18 at approximately 8:04 PM. The offender pictured in this post is responsible for both robberies. He is a white male, approximately 5’11 or 6’ tall, slender to medium build. In both robberies he displayed a black firearm with a brown grip in his waistband. It is believed that he parked a vehicle (possibly a dark gray or black, late model SUV) on Maple Street Extension and approached the store on foot on both occasions. If you have any information pertinent to either of these robberies please contact the Moon Township Police Department Special Investigations Unit at 412-262-5000.

The Moon Township Police Department remains committed to providing professional police service to our community, including helping to provide a safe and secure environment for our community’s school children. Since 2015 the Moon Township Police Department has assigned a full time SRO (School Resource Officer) to work within the Moon Area School District. The SRO is a fully sworn police officer. Our SRO works hand in hand with the district to continually develop and implement security plans for the district’s buildings. Our patrol officers routinely patrol not only the exterior of the school buildings, but inside the buildings as well. Each day our officers can be seen conducting “Park and Walk” patrols of the schools, during which time they patrol the interior and exterior of the school buildings on foot. The SRO, patrol officers, and detectives of the Special Investigations Unit thoroughly investigate any threats made against the safety of the schools that are reported to the department, and criminal charges have and will be brought against those who may be proven to be responsible for such threats. While our goal is always to prevent violent incidents from occurring, our officers are trained and prepared to respond to any dangerous situation that may arise in our schools. Since 2009 our officers have been trained to respond to an “Active Shooter” situation, and currently the vast majority of our officers are trained in “Advanced Active Shooter Response”and “Tactical First Aid”. Our officers train in these tactics regularly, participating in joint training exercises with police officers from many other local jurisdictions, and preparing for a coordinated response inside, or outside, our community. Each of our officers are equipped with the necessary specialized tools and equipment to respond to such an emergency. In light of recent national events, the Moon Township Police Department feels that it is important to reaffirm our steadfast commitment to the safety of our community’s school children. Many of our officers live and raise families in this community and all have a vested interest in protecting our community’s most valuable resource – our children.

We continue to receive complaints from victims of these common scams. Please take a moment to spread the word and warn others about these crimes.

This is a message from the Moon Township Parks and Recreation Department. The location for the Moon Park Pavilion Reservations scheduled for Monday has been moved from the Township Building to the lower level of the Public Safety Building.

We continue to get complaints about drivers passing the school bus on University Blvd near Sheetz. Drivers are reminded that they must stop for a school bus when the red flashing lights are activated, EVEN ON A FOUR LANE ROAD when the bus is on the opposite side of the road. We have cited multiple drivers at this location. If convicted of passing a school bus while the flashing red lights are activated, drivers will face a $250 fine, a 60 day license suspension, and 5 points on your driving record. More importantly, these drivers endanger the safety of the children in our community. Many school buses are equipped with video recorders, and bus drivers are empowered to report violators to police. These drivers can then be cited by police. Please be mindful of school buses.
