 CONGRATULATIONS to Ofr. Denny Brillhart – 2013 YORK COUNTY Officer of the Year; as presented to him by the York County Police heritage Museum at the York County Administration Building on July 24.

Among many notable items, Dennis’s most notable incident was the discovery of a wrecked vehicle 150’ off the roadway in North Codorus Twp. in January of last year.  The officer first found the vehicle because he observed a dim light in the darkened field and then located the driver who had been thrown from the vehicle.  The driver was seriously injured and would not have survived much longer in the sub-freezing conditions.  Ofr. Brillhart received a glass “trophy” as did the other two finalist, a gift certificate, and a plaque that was provided to the department.

We have had many officers included for this nomination as a finalist but this is a first for the “top cop” spot at Southwestern in our 12 years of existence.

A Word from the Chief

Take a moment and get to know more about our department and Chief Gregory Bean.

The overall philosophy of the Southwestern Regional Police Department is to provide the most professional police services possible in a fiscally responsible manner. We will achieve this by being innovative and progressive in our approach to solving problems. All employees will be tasked with this responsibility and be given the authority and the tools to accomplish these tasks.

We will not forget that the input of the residents' concerns and desires will guide this department. Being open to new ideas, being responsive to those ideas, and always looking to improve, is ultimately important. By working with residents, business owners, and all others involved in the criminal justice process, our goals are to reduce crime, disorder and to provide a safe community in which to live, work, and play.

“Continuous Improvement is What We Do.”
