Working for a Safer Tomorrow
The Public Safety Department is responsible for providing police and fire services within the Town of Landis. The department is committed to protecting the lives, property and rights of all residents and visitors within the community through professional law enforcement and fire services by providing 24-hour police and fire protection.
The police department has an authorized strength of 12 full-time, 3 part-time and several reserve officers. The fire department has 9 full-time firefighters as well as several part-time and volunteer members.
Historically two separate departments, the Town of Landis’ Board of Aldermen voted in late 2020 to adopt a combined Public Safety Department model. The two departments are now led by a Director of Public Safety who oversees the daily operations of both services. The Town of Landis is continuing its transition toward a Public Safety Department model, with the goal of having several dual-certified employees within both the police and fire service divisions.
