Chief's Message

As a life-long resident of Pocono Township, I have seen the transformation of our area from a rural farming community to a more vibrant, active, and diverse one. As such, every Pocono Township Police Officer is committed to serve and protect everyone whether resident or visitor.

It is with this thought in mind that I want to welcome you to our website.  This site should serve as a tool where you can find general information about programs designed to engage our Police officers with the community, as well as specific services that the department provides to Township residents.

At our core, we know that enforcing the law and preventing crime are our most fundamental duties; however, we also know that intentionally connecting and engaging with our residents creates a stronger, safer, and more cohesive community.   

Kent Werkheiser,

Chief of Police

Pocono Township
