The City of Williamsport is the county seat for Lycoming County located in north central Pennsylvania. The city encompasses approximately nine square miles and is home to approximately thirty thousand local residents. We are home to two different colleges, Lycoming College, in the east end of town, and The Pennsylvania College of Technology (a Penn State affiliate), which is located in the west end of town. The Williamsport Bureau of Police is currently budgeted for fifty-two sworn police officers and four other civilian personnel.

We are an outstanding law enforcement agency that is known for our professionalism and outstanding career opportunities.

Our department is known throughout the law enforcement community for its exceptional performance and professionalism. We enjoy an excellent working relationship with many local, State and Federal agencies throughout Pennsylvania.
