Travis Wood Promoted to Police Sergeant

After a thorough process, including a written test, oral interviews and a management assessment, Travis Wood was selected and promoted to Police Sergeant at the Board of Supervisors Meeting on August 24, 2022.

Beginning his career at Towamencin in 2006, he served as a patrol officer until 2010, when he was assigned to the highway safety unit as a traffic safety officer. In this role, Travis earned certification as a crash reconstructionist, which he uses to investigate crashes throughout the North Penn region, as he serves on the regional crash investigation team. In 2012, Wood earned qualifications as a firearms trainer and serves as a field training officer for new officers of the department.

Sergeant Wood earned his bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from Mansfield University and his master’s degree in homeland security from St. Joseph’s University. Throughout his career, Travis has been committed to ongoing training and professional skill development.

We congratulate Sergeant Wood on his well-deserved promotion and wish him the best in this new role!


Police Department honored for their commitment to the County's Crisis Intervention Specialist Program

At the Board of Supervisors Meeting on August 24th, Anna Trout, Director of Crisis and Diversion at the Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), and Michelle Monzo, of Montgomery County Emergency Service (MCES), presented Chief Tim Troxel and the Towamencin Police Department with a plaque commemorating their collective accomplishment and dedication by attaining 100 percent participation in the MCES Crisis Intervention Specialist Program. Ms. Monzo noted attendance of the program is not a County or State requirement, but that the Towamencin Police Department has made it a requirement; adding that two-thirds of the department are enrolled for the CIS Advanced class. The skills the officers have acquired through the program have made them invaluable resources to the community and the mental health system. 

The Crisis Intervention School through MCES builds officer skills through education on mental illness, aims to increase empathy, and decrease the probability of criminal justice system involvement.  This school teaches trainees how to interact with individuals in crisis and provides guidance on county resources.
