The Gettysburg Police Department has a time honored tradition of protecting and serving our community of over 7,600 residents and over 2 million visitors a year from around the world. Our dedicated team of full time officers, part-time officers, auxiliary officers and administrative officer and volunteers are second to none. While our department is small, our experience is wide spread with officers who received specialized training in a wide range of subjects including but not limited to SWAT, CSI, Intelligence, De-escalation tactics, Sexual Assault Investigations and Domestic Violence.  Our Department has Officers who are multilingual, to those who lived in Europe, Asia and the Middle East resulting in understanding the views and cultures of those countries.  Some of our Officers are military veterans, firemen and EMT's allowing us to provide critical assistance to those we serve in time of need.
