Butler Township is a mostly rural community of just under 52 square miles in southern Luzerne County, Pennsylvania. The township is nestled in the Sugarloaf Valley with mountains to the north and south. Nearly 10,000 people live in Butler Township, which is small enough to offer solitude but close enough to the nearby cities of Hazleton and Wilkes-Barre for local residents to enjoy larger-scale cultural events, shopping and dining.
The Butler Township Police Department is managed by Chief John Hays and consists of a lieutenant, four patrol sergeants, two detectives, thirteen full time patrol officers, two part time dog law enforcement officers, and two full time clerical support staff.
The police officers are continuously participating in advanced training and the police vehicles contain the latest equipment to aid in law enforcement.
