Police Chief Daniel DoneganLetter from Chief of Police, Daniel Donegan


The success of any police department in the performance of its duties is largely measured by the degree of support and cooperation it receives from the people of the community that it serves. It is of paramount importance to all the members of the Lansdowne Police Department that we secure the confidence, respect, and trust of the public. The cultivation of such desirable attitudes is dependent upon the proper performance of duty by all the members of this department.

Professionalization of police is constantly evolving and gaining general recognition, but it can win universal acclaim and permanent status only if the actions of the police are reflected in intelligent, sincere, efficient and courteous service. The police profession must embody the highest attributes of every other profession. Service to the community is the benchmark of the professional police officer. All of our officers and staff are committed to providing Lansdowne with professional service in every aspect of our daily duties.

On behalf of myself and all the officers and staff, I would like to welcome you to the Internet Home of the Lansdowne Police Department. Our intention when we designed this web site was to make it informative, useful and hopefully, fun. It is also our intention to update this site regularly with information about our department, your community and some items of general interest. There will be a wealth of information for and about Lansdowne in this department page so please visit often. Please keep in mind that this site is for informational purposes only. Although you can leave messages on this site, it should not be used to report emergencies or information of a confidential or sensitive nature. Please continue to dial 911 any time you need immediate police, fire or medical assistance.

Daniel Donegan,
Chief of Police
