The St. Clair Township Board of Supervisors are continuing to grow their police department. Personnel may be added in the future depending upon the need and Seward’s and New Florence’s participation in a cooperative agreement beyond the initial trial term. Under the agreement, the police are treating New Florence, Seward, and St. Clair Township as one single coverage area. Details such as monthly summary reports and policing priorities are still being worked out. Speeding, use of jake brakes, and illegal drug usage are concerns of the New Florence borough council that will be addressed. Ordinance violations within New Florence will not be addressed by the St. Clair Township Police Department. Administrative questions regarding police coverage in New Florence should be sent to the New Florence borough office at 724-235-2000 or the borough email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Administrative questions concerning the St. Clair Township Police Department should be sent to the St. Clair Township supervisors at 814-446-5211. Please keep in mind that calling either office will not result in the dispatching of an officer. Residents must be aware that calling an office is not a substitute for calling 911 or the Westmoreland County non-emergency number. Thank you.
