The Plymouth Borough Police Department provides services to residents and businesses in the Borough seven days a week, 24 hours a day.  The department  provides assistance to local, state, and federal agencies at their request. The Department currently comprises of 9 Police Officers including the Chief. 

The police department builds upon its tradition of excellence in service to all. The department continues to seek support and cooperation from the community it serves and from those who serve the community. The organizational culture is responsive to new ideas and is one in which all employees are given the opportunity to develop to their highest potential and see themselves as agents of change. Members of the department base all their relationships on the premise that the public and police are one.

The police department participates with the Pennsylvania State Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR). Crimes are divided into Part I offenses, which are serious crimes, and Part II offenses, which are less serious crimes.   

Each officer specializes in various aspects of policing. Officers have received in-depth training in criminal investigations, accident reconstruction, narcotics investigations, motor carrier enforcement, weights and measures, firearms instructor certification, field sobriety training instructor certification, and digital voice stress examinations and forensics.

Since 2015, three officers have received specialized training concerning school policing. The training encompasses not only the tactical response, but also the psychological factors that precipitate an event. These Officers were trained in developing lesson plans and classroom instruction at the Wyoming Valley West High School.

Department members are required to receive 12 hours of continuing education provided by the municipal Police Officers Training and Education Commission. In addition, cardiopulmonary resuscitation, first aid skills and firearms training must be kept current. Department members are certified annually by an in-house firearms instructor with their on-duty weapon, off-duty weapon and department shotgun. Officers are also required to be certified in less-lethal weapons such as oleoresium capsicum, batons and tasers.  Specialized training and certification relating to the department rifle is provided during the year.

Each department member is allowed to attend non-mandatory training whenever it is possible. Due to the size of the department, information obtained during these courses is shared with other members to provide the department with the most current tactics and methods of policing.
