UPPD Directives

Penn Police follow many policies and procedures, also known as directives, in execution of their duties. This page provides several of the most recently approved versions of our directives. A small number of directives have redacted content as they may disclose sensitive information, such as law enforcement investigative techniques or contact information. These directives are reviewed on a constant basis and updated as needed, to reflect changes required by law and best practices in policing.
