The Titusville Police Department is currently comprised of ten full-time sworn police officers committed to protecting the citizens of Titusville. The officers are well trained in all aspects of law enforcement and diligently strive towards providing the best service possible.
The department provides twenty-four hour protection and has lockup facilities on site. The officers patrol the City streets with five cruisers, an unmarked SUV, two bicycles and foot patrols.
Titusville Police Department is dispatched through Crawford County 9-1-1. Call 9-1-1 if you have an emergency or need to speak to a Titusville Police Officer. Officers are in radio contact with the 9-1-1 Center at all times. The 9-1-1 Center contacts the officers on duty by radio and gives them the location and other information of incidents. This information can be for either emergency or non-emergency situations.
In July of 2012, the Department lost it’s K-9 Officer Kai to cancer. The Titusville Police Department had raised over $29,000 in community donations to purchase a police K-9 and a patrol car specially equipped for the K-9 in 2004. K-9 Kai was trained in narcotics detection, protection, tracking and article searches. His handler and partner was Patrolman Clarence “Pete” Peterson. Kai and his service to the community will be deeply missed.
