The officers of the Eddystone Police Department pledge to provide professional law enforcement services while operating under a philosophy of community policing designed to promote a partnership with the community to ensure public safety, reduce crime and improve the overall quality of life in Eddystone. View the Police Department website at www.eddystonepd.com.
Community Policing is a philosophy that promotes a partnership in which the police department, residents, business owners and local government officials work collaboratively to solve the issues in our community.
In addition to patrol by car, residents will notice police officers riding bikes and walking throughout our community. Everyone is encouraged to meet the officers and address any question and or concerns.
Please consider taking an active role in keeping our community safe by joining our Neighborhood Watch program. For additional information about this program, please contact the borough office.
Our police department believes that education is an important tool in crime prevention. Throughout the year, residents will be invited to information lectures on topics such as drug awareness, domestic violence and fraud protection. In addition, our police department will be working in conjunction with our Recreation Committee to host Red Cross training events on first aid and CPR at little or no cost to the residents.
The Eddystone Police Department participates annually in the National Prescription Drug Take Back Initiative and a permanent box for the collection of prescription drugs will soon be housed at the Borough Hall.
The Eddystone Police Department is staffed with a Chief of Police; one Lieutenant; one Sergeant; and six full-time Patrol Officers. Part-time officers are assigned to open shifts to cover vacations, personal days, illness and holidays. Police services are provided in our community all day, everyday. For emergency response, always dial 911. For non-emergency information (calls that do not require an officer to respond or a written police report to be issued), please contact Police Headquaters at 610-874-9325 during normal business hours.
In addition to providing our community with excellent police services, the Eddystone Police Department also participates in the Delaware County Drug Task Force and PennDOT’s Aggressive Driving and Smooth Driver initiatives.
