Lieutenant Cimba


Proudly serving as the Elizabeth Township Lieutenant since July 2023.

Police Patch


My name is Gerald Cimba and I was recently promoted to the rank of Lieutenant at the July 3rd, 2023 Board of Commissioners Meeting.  I have been proudly serving Elizabeth Township as a Police Officer since November 2007.  In 2011, the Elizabeth Township Board of Commissioners, along with the Civil Service Commission, promoted me to the rank of Sergeant.  The department still has three great sergeants serving our community after my recent promotion from sergeant to lieutenant.  Throughout my nearly sixteen years with the Elizabeth Township Police Department, I have had the pleasure of meeting and working with so many incredible people, and I look forward to continuing to get to know more of you as I proudly take on my new role as Lieutenant of the Elizabeth Township Police Department.


I have a rich history with law enforcement, which makes me confident in my new position.  After graduating from McKeesport Area High School in 1998, I attended the IUP Police Academy and graduated in 2003.  My law enforcement career kicked off later in 2003 when I began working as a Police Officer with the City of Duquesne on a part-time basis.  A year later in 2004, I was also hired as a part-time officer in the City of McKeesport.  Up until the City of Duquesne hired me as a full-time Police Officer in late 2004, I worked at both McKeesport and Duquesne, which provided me the opportunity to learn so much by working in two different environments.  After working in the City of Duquesne for four years, I began my career here in Elizabeth Township, where I have comfortably settled into my current career.


My wife and I have been married for sixteen years and have two amazing children.  We have been residents of Elizabeth Township since 2008 which makes working here even more personal and enjoyable.  I could not have progressed this far in my career without my family, and I am glad to share this experience with them, which makes playing a role in keeping our community safe and healthy even more important to me. Integrity and safety are two of my top values both personally and professionally, so I thank the Elizabeth Township Board of Commissioners for giving me this opportunity to serve my family and my community to the best of my ability.  Serving Elizabeth Township is a great pleasure to me, and I look forward to serving you all in my new role!
