EAGLEVILLE, PA – Today, the Montgomery County Department of Public Safety published and released its 2020 Annual Report. The document is intended to provide partner agencies and community members with the opportunity to learn about the Department’s work and revisit some important activities and statistics from the past year.
“2020 will certainly be remembered as one of the most unique years in the history of Montgomery County DPS,” said Michael O. Vest, Director of the Department of Public Safety. “From the COVID-19 pandemic to the social unrest that occurred across the nation, 2020 certainly placed enormous demands on our Department. In the face of significant challenges, the members of this Department responded as they always do - rising to the occasion, adapting to constantly changing circumstances, and performing their duties with the highest levels of professionalism and respect.”
The Department of Public Safety’s mission is to provide the community with highly professional, well-coordinated public safety services through training, education, communications, planning and management of the response to, and recovery from, natural or man-made disasters. We do this primarily by operating the County’s 9-1-1 public safety telephone system and emergency dispatch radio service, through our Office of Emergency Management and the training we provide to fire, law enforcement and emergency medical first responders at our Public Safety Training Campus.
The 2020 Annual Report is available for viewing by the public on the Department of Public Safety’s website, at https://www.montcopa.org/DocumentCenter/View/32155/Montgomery-County-Department-of-Public-Safety-2020-Annual-Report.
