Edgewood, PA 15218
Thank you for taking the time to visit the Edgewood
Police Department website.
We appreciate your interest
in the police department and continued support
throughout the community in which we serve. Our members
value the strong relationship that exists between our
agency and the citizens of the Borough of Edgewood.
The Edgewood Police Department is a full time law
enforcement agency that provides police services to the
residents and visitors of the Borough of Edgewood 24
hours a day throughout the year. The department consists
of fourteen sworn law enforcement officers, including the
Chief of Police. The officers rotate throughout the day
on three separate eight hour shifts answering calls for
service, conducting traffic enforcement and patrolling
the community. The police department is housed within
the Edgewood Borough building, located at 2 Race Street,
Edgewood, Pennsylvania 15218.
The current Chief of Police is Robert C. Payne. Chief
Payne oversees the day to day operations of the police
department and is responsible for many of the decisions
associated with the effective operation of the
department. He is assisted by Sergeant Susan Kaskie.
Together, this staff represents over fifty years of
police experience. In 2009, the police department
successfully obtained national recognition from the
Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies
(C.A.L.E.A). Currently, we are the only department in
Allegheny County with that status.
Edgewood police officers are dispatched to calls
through the Allegheny County 911 Center, which is
located in the Point Breeze section of the City of
Pittsburgh. The department also works closely with the
recently created Emergency Services Department. The
Emergency Services Department is staffed by one
full-time and three part-time employees. These members
are all trained firefighters who can respond to any fire
department emergency. They also perform many of the
daily administrative tasks for the police department.
The Emergency Services Department is staffed Monday
through Friday from 8:00AM until 12:00AM.
The Edgewood Police Department is also responsible
for the assignment of school crossing guards throughout
the school year. The crossing guards are used during the
morning, lunchtime and after school hours at several
busy locations. The crossing guards help to maintain the
safety of many children on their way to and from school
each day. They also aid with other pedestrian traffic.
