I have a problem with motorists violating traffic laws on my street (speeding, failing to stop for posted signs, ect.). Is there anything the Police Department can do about this?

The Beaver Police Department values the importance of enforcing traffic laws to reduce traffic-related crashes and promote safety. You may call the police station at 724-773-6709 and request extra traffic patrols in your area. The information will be given to the Departments, which will then try to have an officer conduct a traffic detail in the problem area. A speed-monitoring trailer may also be set up to encourage motorists to slow down.

I just saw something that looked very suspicious, possibly a crime. I’m not sure if I should call the police. What should I do?

The Beaver Police Department encourages you to report any activity you observe that may seem suspicious or strange. Many crimes go unreported to the police because witnesses are reluctant to call, either because they feel it isn’t important or because they think they are wasting the police department’s time. It won’t be taken seriously anyway. We want to assure you that no call received will be brushed aside or not given the attention that it deserves. Concerned and observant citizens provide some of our most useful information for solving cases. Your vigilance allows us to do our jobs more effectively and with greater success. Calling the police immediately will allow officers to respond to an area quickly, allowing them to possibly stop a crime in progress and/or catch those responsible for committing it before they have left the area.

Remain calm
Stay in your vehicle and follow the officer’s instructions

When do i need to file a crash report?

There are two types of crashes: non-reportable and reportable. A non-reportable crash occurs when no injuries occur and the vehicles involved are drivable. It is not necessary to have a police report on file for this type of crash. However, you should call the department to have an officer file a report and verify the information the other motorist provided is accurate and valid. We cannot investigate the crash if an officer is not called to the scene. We can give you an AA-600 crash report form to complete and submit to the state.

A reportable crash occurs when injuries result from the crash or if any of the vehicles involved need to be towed due to disabling damage. State law requires a report. Failure to notify police of a reportable crash is an offense under the Motor Vehicle Code.
