Hello and welcome to your resource page for the Indiana Borough Police Department.  My family and I are honored and humbled by the opportunity to serve you.  Indiana Borough is a welcoming, vibrant community - and place of significance.  We are the seat of Indiana County, proud host of the Indiana University of Pennsylvania, birthplace of Jimmy Stewart, and are known for our many wonderful special events throughout the year.

Indiana Borough is a diverse community and its diversity makes us special.  Positive relationships are important here.  We have a thriving downtown with a wide variety of shopping, dining, and entertainment experiences for everyone. Although we are pedestrian and bicycle friendly, we have an excellent public transportation system, and many easily accessible parking options for your convenience.

There is a peace, safety, and high quality of life here in Indiana.  This could only be achieved by the dedication of our community to having a professional police department.  The men and women serving Indiana Borough are your neighbors and friends.  They are highly trained, highly skilled, caring, compassionate, prideful people. Our responsibility to them is to ensure they have the resources necessary to safely and successfully handle any and every situation presented in today’s world – for the betterment of every person within Indiana Borough.


My name is Justin Schawl and I was born and raised in Indiana, Pennsylvania.  I am a graduate of our public-school system and the Indiana University of Pennsylvania.  My wife, Krista, and I live and proudly raise our three wonderful children in Indiana - we invite you to do the same.  I am your Chief of Police and welcome an opportunity to meet you personally.
