CROSS OVER PARKING PROHIBITED - PA VEHICLE CODE 3354(A) The Borough has received numerous complaints regarding vehicles parked against the flow of traffic. Under PA Law vehicles parked on a two-way street must have the right-side (passenger) wheels against the curb and must be within 12 inches of the curb (Law listed below). Swissvale officers will be paying attention to these violations as it creates a hazard to the free flow of traffic and vehicles attempting to pull from spaces against the flow of oncoming traffic. § 3354. Additional parking regulations. (a) Two-way highways.--Except as otherwise provided in this section, every vehicle standing or parked upon a two-way highway shall be positioned parallel to and with the right-hand wheels within 12 inches of the right-hand curb or, in the absence of a curb, as close as practicable to the right edge of the right-hand shoulder. (f) Penalty.--A person violating subsection (a), (b) or (d)(1) is guilty of a summary offense and shall, upon conviction, be sentenced to pay a fine of not more than $15. A person violating subsection (d)(2) or (3) or (e) is guilty of a summary offense and shall, upon conviction, be sentenced to pay a fine of not less than $50 nor more than $200. If a person is convicted under subsection (d)(2) or (3) in the absence of a sign stating the penalty amount, the fine imposed may not exceed $50.

Congratulations to Chief Watson on his appointment and swearing in this evening. We look forward to your eventful administration. Good Luck and again Congratulations Chief!

I have seen numerous comments that the Swissvale Police Department is not responsive on social media about incidents that have occurred. For many reasons it is not possible for us to post on incidents that have occurred due to the nature and status of an ongoing investigation. Not only would these post compromise investigations, they in many cases would violate people’s privacy. If you have a question about a specific incident you can speak with me by calling 412 271-6666. As always, if you see suspicious activity and believe that the police need to check it, please call 911. Provide the dispatcher with as much information as possible. Charles Watson Interim Chief of Police

Our thoughts go out to all members of the U.S. Marshal’s Service and the family of Deputy U.S. Marshal Christopher David Hill, who was killed in the line of duty this morning in Harrisburg. We also send prayers and well wishes for a speedy recovery to the two officers who were shot in this incident this morning. God Speed to the Thin Blue Line Family.

The Swissvale Police Officers would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year!!! BE SAFE ALL....

With the holidays approaching, the Swissvale Police Department would like to remind residents to keep their vehicles locked as well as asking them to remove any valuable items from the vehicle. In addition, if you are expecting a package to be delivered to your house please try and bring them inside as soon as possible or have a trusted friend or neighbor retrieve the package for you. Please report any suspicious activity to the Swissvale Police Department as soon as possible if seen. Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday's!!!!

Let's get this cop killer!

It is with a tremendous heartache and sadness that the members of the Swissvale Police Department acknowledge the murder of Officer Brian Shaw of the New Kensington Police Department. Officer Shaw was killed in the line of duty Friday evening after chasing an armed suspect who shot him. The suspect fled the scene. Our thoughts and prayers are with Officer Shaw's family, the New Kensington Police Department and the Thin Blue Line family. May God watch over each of you and keep you safe in the quest for justice in Officer Shaw's name. Anyone having information into this crime is asked to contact the New Kensington Police Department, Westmoreland County 911 Center or the Pennsylvania State Police. God Speed

The Men and Women of the Swissvale Police Department would like to congratulate Chief Greg Geppert on his retirement! Thank you for your years of service and dedication. You may be retired but you will always be Chief to us!!! Congratulations again and enjoy your retirement.

I am not the author, but I can't express it better... I am tired. My family is tired. My coworkers are tired. My profession is tired. For more years than I can count we have been under attack, both figuratively and literally. We have been blamed for all of the ills of society. I have been mocked, ridiculed, accused and protested by strangers, celebrities and elected officials for things I had nothing to do with. I am tired. I have had friends, people I have known all my life, try and convince me that I am racist due to my choice of profession, all because of something they read about happening somewhere else. I am tired. I have been told to "see it from another perspective" all while those same people refuse to see it from mine. I have seen horrors that no one should have to, yet I am offered no understanding or compassion from those I work for. I am tired. I have laid friends to rest while under this constant siege. I have cried on duty for the powerlessness I feel at times when I was unable to stop evil from happening, only to be blamed for the evil existing in the first place. I am tired. I will go to work today. I will continue to defend the defenseless. I will continue to stand up to bullies and criminals. I will continue to put myself between evil and those in need of protection. I will do this because I swore an oath to do so. Please just know that I am tired.
