Middletown Township PD has a five person Motor Unit led by Captain Pete Feeney. In 2019 the Motorcycle Unit conducted dozens of details throughout the township and beyond. They continually provided their services to other neighboring townships and assisted with many community events. Some notable events would be the delivery of Christmas and Easter meals for families of officers killed in the line of duty. The Motor Unit did numerous funeral escorts for military veterans, retired officers, and soldiers killed in the line of duty. They conducted longer distance escorts for both Vietnam and Korean War veterans to participate in the Tour of Honor down to Washington D.C. and back. All this coupled with parades, charity rides, traffic control and normal patrol, the Motorcycle Unit was quite busy and active throughout the year. In addition to all this, one motor patrol officer is dually assigned to a Traffic Unit.
MTPD’s Traffic Safety Unit is made up of sergeants and officers within the Patrol Division who respond to and investigate most of the crashes in the township. Traffic Safety Unit personnel have specialized training in handling vehicle crashes, including advanced accident reconstruction certification. Traffic Safety Unit personnel will almost always handle any crash involving a serious injury, and will always handle all fatal crashes. MTPD handles the second most traffic accidents of any municipality in Bucks County, a little over 1,800 crashes per year. With 220 miles of very busy roadway including I-295 and the Route 1 superhighway, our Traffic Safety Unit is one of the busiest MTPD units in the department.
The Traffic Safety Unit personnel are Sgt. Mike Lubold, Sgt. Mark McLeod, Officer Brian Agostino, Officer Mike Stum, Officer Andrew Herman, and Officer Kevin Platenecky.
