Our department makes use of several different models of vehicles to patrol the Municipality. These vehicles are comprised of Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptors, Ford Police Interceptor sedans, and Harley Davidson motorcycles.  Most of the vehicle fleet consists of fully marked police vehicles; however, the department does utilize unmarked police vehicles for certain operations.  We also have Smith and Wesson Hybrid bicycles that are used to conduct bike patrols, on and off road, throughout the Municipality.

As of late 2011, the Ford Motor Company stopped its production of the Crown Victoria Police Interceptor.  Its replacement was designated as the Police Interceptor sedan, which is based on the popular Taurus line.  The Murrysville Police Department has chosen this model as the new replacement for all police cars.

In selecting a new police vehicle to start replacing our fleet with, we have also decided to change the visual appearance of our cars.  All new police cars will come in the widely recognizable black and white paint scheme with a new graphic design.

The department makes use of speed enforcement equipment designed for monitoring speeding violations on the roadways.  Examples of this equipment are Robic stop watches and ENRADD (Electronic Non-Radar Device).  Speeding complaints are the number one complaint received from residents.  The ENRADD unit was obtained in 2008 through a grant.  It operates by using two infrared beams which cross a roadway, designed to time the speed of vehicle passing between two points.  It is extremely accurate in determining speed.

The department also utilizes speed trailers, which function by an interior radar device to determine the speed of a vehicle.  The speed is then registered on a large display board, which serves as visual notification and deterrent to motorists.  We also have a device known as StealthStat.  This device mounts on a pole, and it also uses a radar gun to measure and record the speed of all vehicles that pass through a designated point on the roadway.  This information is then recorded on a self-contained computer.  Once that information is downloaded, many reports are available to study the speed, time of day, and directions traveled by all vehicles during the time that it was recorded.  This information assists the department in determining which roadways throughout town have speeding problems.  It also aids the municipal engineer in evaluating roadways for proper speed posting.
