Newtown Police Chief John Hearn has released the Newtown Township Police Department 2020 Annual Report. Excepts from his message to the community:
As we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to find new ways of connecting with our community. I am proud of the ingenuity and determination of our officers who continue to be the model of community policing. I believe these methods of connecting with the community are having a positive effect. One example is our videos of “We Are One Call Away” and “Story Time with Officer Jules”. These short videos were directed and published to our school-age children to show our commitment to them. In addition, we continually push out our social media reminders to lock your car doors, fraud prevention tips, and driver safety tips. We are hoping for tangible results with enhanced community involvement, a reduction of thefts and frauds, and safer roadways. I have met with many community members, and have listened to and gained valuable insights into the needs of the community and potential ways of solving our specific community issues. Good policing takes partnerships with the community. We continue to find new ways of making connections, and building those partnerships.
I want to thank the community of Newtown and Wrightstown Townships for your support of our officers, and for doing your part to make us better. It is our collaborative goal to make Newtown and Wrightstown Townships the best that they can be. We are committed to serving all the members of our community and know that we will do our part.

- New Police Vehicle Graphics: In order to continue to evaluate police expenditures and reduce the cost of capital purchases, a decision was made to change the ordering of two-toned; blue and white vehicles, at a savings of approximately $1400.00 per unit, to a single color. The new vehicles will now be ordered in a single color and the graphics were enhanced to properly identify the police unit, while still maintaining a clean and professional image.
