There are two types of crashes, non-reportable and reportable. A non-reportable crash occurs when there are no injuries and the vehicles involved are drivable. It is not necessary to have a police report on file for this type of crash. However, if you prefer, you can still call the department to have an officer file a report and verify the information the other motorist provided is accurate and valid. A reportable crash is when there are injuries as a result of the crash, or if any of the vehicles involved will need to be towed as a result of disabling damage. A report is required by state law. Failure to notify police of a reportable crash is an offense under the Motor Vehicle Code.

  • Remain calm;

  • Avoid sudden movements in the vehicle so the officer is not unnecessarily alarmed;
  • Stay in your vehicle and follow the officer’s instructions;
  • Tell the officer where you are reaching when your driver’s license, vehicle registration and proof of insurance is requested;
  • Turn on the interior light at nighttime after coming to a complete stop.

Yes. Businesses and residential property owners are permitted two (2) courtesy false alarm activation responses per calendar quarter. Third and subsequent responses to false alarms during that period are referred to as nuisance alarms. The business or property owner will be charged a $35.00 fee for a response to a nuisance alarm. The Murrysville Police Department values the importance of alarm systems, and as such, we are committed to responding to activations to ensure your safety and protect your property. However, repeated responses to false activations at the same address take officers off patrol where they otherwise may have been needed. If your alarm activation is cancelled prior to police arrival, you will not be billed. An officer will still respond just to ensure that the cancellation was not the result of duress or coercion caused by an intruder.
The Murrysville Police Department encourages you to report any activity you observe that may seem suspicious or strange. Often, 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 and it won’t be taken seriously anyway. We would like to assure you that no call received will be brushed aside or not given the attention that it deserves. Concerned and observant citizens provide us with 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, giving them the opportunity to possibly stop a crime in progress and/or catch those who are responsible for committing it before they have left the area.
