The Ford City Borough Police Department has been in a prolonged state of transition. As of June 2018, the department is employed by Chief Paul Hughes, two sergeants and nine part-time police officers. Staffing is augmented in response to a number ordinance and crime issues in order to provide at least minimal 24-hour/7-day coverage.
The Department has hired a paid part-time Administrative Assistant who works 25-30 hours per week and perform clerical duties, including scheduling of court appearances, filing, and preparing Uniform Crime Reports (UCR). None of the current employees are unionized or eligible for benefits.
The Department provides all police services, including patrol, traffic enforcement, and investigation of crimes, to a population of 2,991 in an area of 0.8 square miles.
Police Headquarters is located in Borough Hall at 1000 4th Avenue. The Department also has storage space for records and non-priority evidence in an annex across the street from Borough Building.
