Highway Safety Unit

The Hatfield Township Police Highway Safety Unit is a specialized unit that is an integral part of the department. When the unit was formed several years ago, it was a three-officer unit. Due to an increase in serious accidents and a growing need for more highly trained officers, the unit now consists of five officers. These officers are all certified accident reconstructionists, with each respective member having an area of expertise. All members take part in investigating serious and fatal accidents; while others are weigh masters and inspection mechanics. These particular talents are tools that are used for specific accidents. The unit also carries out child seat inspections, truck safety inspections, and seat belt usage details. All HSU officers are members of the North Penn Area DUI enforcement team, which is active throughout the year. All in all, the HSU is recognized as one of the finest in the area.
