Steffen named Warwick Township police chief
His appointment by vote of the Warwick Township Board of Supervisors followed a unanimous recommendation by the Northern Lancaster County Regional Police Department task force. Chief Steffen’s appointment took effect Aug. 15.
Steffen, 53, leads Warwick Township’s 13-officer force as the next step in a 32-year law enforcement career. Most recently, Steffen concluded 27 years of service with the Northern York County Regional Police Department, a 50-officer department serving 70,000 residents.
Steffen began his NYCRPD career as a patrol officer and retired as detective sergeant in charge of the department’s criminal investigations unit.
“I am looking forward to assuming command of the Warwick Township Police Department,” said Chief Steffen. “Warwick is well-known as a progressive township with a regional outlook, which goes very well with my background. We will be stressing community policing and community involvement, with an emphasis on transparency and interaction with the wider community,” the chief added.
Steffen plans to implement that same law enforcement and leadership philosophy as chief of the planned Northern Lancaster County Regional Police Department, a merger of the Warwick, Clay and Penn Township police departments, tentatively scheduled to take effect early in 2012.
Chief Steffen is a graduate of Red Land High School in York County, with an associate of arts degree in police science from Harrisburg Area Community College and a bachelor of arts degree in business administration from Almeda University.
He has also completed extensive coursework in criminal justice and criminal justice administration from The Pennsylvania State University and Elizabethtown College, and has advanced police and command training from Penn State and Northwestern Universities.
Chief Steffen will be re-locating to Warwick Township from York County, where he will live with his wife and two school-age children. An older son attends Duquesne University, and another is a recent graduate of Juniata College. More NEW CHIEF, page A6
