Community Relations

The Fairview Township Police Department is proud of its positive relationship within our community. 

One of the ways we do this is through T.E.A.M. The Teaching, Educating, And Mentoring (T.E.A.M.) School Liaison Program is a school based “law related” curriculum, currently taught to students in grade 5 at both Fairview Elementary and Fishing Creek Elementary Schools. The officers doing these classes have received 40 hours of training that  introduced them to over 30 lesson plans on various topics such as bullying and safety. Each lesson is approximately 60 minutes in length and can be used as a stand-alone program for assemblies or for special events. Fairview Township Police T.E.A.M. instructors are Officer Pete Picciurro, Officer William Buzzard, and Officer Jason Lotier.

The Fairview Township Police Department also holds perodic presentations for parents to help educate them on what to look for if their kids are on drugs. These classes are geared towards identifying and stopping illegal conduct before a drug addiction becomes a problem, and is not focused on criminal enforcement. Our hope would be that someone would get the help they need before it develops into a situation where police are required. Please contact Ofc. Michael Bennage if you would like additional information at (717)-901-5267.

This Department also frequently provides talks to Girls and Boys Scout groups, businesses, church, and senior citizen groups on a variety of subjects.  We are pleased to accommodate most requests. If you are interested in having an officer speak at your next meeting, please contact us.
