A Message From Hanover Police Chief Mark D. Roddy


HANOVER TOWNSHIP — A Message From Hanover Police Chief Mark D. Roddy

I am outraged and saddened by the heinous incident that recently occurred in Minneapolis. The actions, or inaction, of the officers involved, is contrary to the values and professionalism of my department and the vast majority of law enforcement agencies nationwide. The Hanover Township Police Department is an accredited police agency and all of our personnel receive in-depth training on numerous critical topics such as ethics, cultural diversity, use of force, and compassionate service.

We are committed to serving all members of society by being mindful of our core values of Respect, Fairness, and Sensitivity. We have a robust internal affairs policy and all citizen complaints are thoroughly investigated to their logical conclusion. We will continue to serve all citizens with the level of professionalism and compassion that our society not only demands but deserves.

While we navigate through these unsettling times due to the current pandemic and the national outrage over recent incidents involving law enforcement, we will continue to build upon the positive relationships with the public that we have worked on for many years.

As always, if we can ever be of any assistance please do not hesitate to contact us.
