History of the Police Department

Buena Borough Police Deparment began as a part time agency in the early 1950's, just after the Borough was formed. The officers all worked full-time jobs and worked part-time for the police department. All of them were residents of the newly-formed Borough of Buena. The officers used their own vehicles for patrol. The first police vehicle purchased by the borough was a 1951 Ford Coach.

More to come, hopefully!
