Chief's Welcome

Happy and Healthy 2020 to all!

As the holiday season passes, we move into the heart of the winter months.  Please be aware of the potential for quick changing weather conditions in our area.  As you are out driving on the roadways, please be cautious during the rain, snow and our ever-famous wintry mix!  Be cautious and courteous to other drivers and pedestrians.

Our roadways are maintained by our own Public Works Department in addition to PennDOT and Allegheny County DPW.  When you see the trucks out working on the roads, please give them the adequate space and safety they need to do their jobs!  This will ensure our streets and roads are cleaned and made safer in a timely fashion.

Stay safe out there!


I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the Ross Township Police Department website. This site will provide a comprehensive look at the capabilities and quality of the officers of the department. All of our officers are proud of the high level of public service that we provide to the citizens of our community, our businesses and our guests. We are a full service police DSC_0064department and pride ourselves on delivering and maintaining excellent standards. I hope you find the website educational, informative and also learn what an excellent job the officers of the department do on a daily basis.

I encourage you to become active in keeping up to date with occurrences in the township and your neighborhoods. Please take advantage of the services provided here to receive alerts, notifications and other pertinent information put out by your police department.

Also, as a personal safety reminder: When you are out and about driving on the roadways of the Township, please be certain to adhere to all of the rules of the roadway, including stop signs, posted speed limits and traffic signals. Please help to do your part to keep our streets safe for our children, residents and guests.

Thank you,
Chief Joseph A. Ley
