Effective March 16, 2020, the Robinson Township Police Department is changing their procedures in answering calls for service for the safety of both the Police Department and the public.
Emergency calls where an individual is in immediate danger or life-threatening calls will continue to be answered by the officers responding to the scene. Calls that are merely reports will continue to be handled over the telephone. When calling 911, complainants should request a return call from the Robinson Township Police Department in order to file such a report. A report constitutes a situation that is neither life-threatening nor an emergency. If an officer returns a phone call and the officer feels the complaint requires a physical response they will do so.
The Police Department will be closed to walk-in complaints. Requests for police reports can be made by calling 412-788-8115, Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM until 3:00 PM. Solicitation permits will not be issued.
The Robinson Township Municipal Building will be locked. If you have an emergency that necessitates speaking to an officer, please use the emergency call box located at the entrance to the Police Station. We discourage anyone from coming to the station except in the case of an emergency.
Officers will continue to patrol and protect all residents and visitors to the Township of Robinson. Officers will not be permitted to shake hands and will be required to maintain a six foot distance from others when possible.
While these policies may present some inconveniences, rest assured they were made with the best interests of our officers, as well as the general public, in mind.
