A Message from the Chief of Police-06 April 2020

On this Monday in early April, I am reminded that this is a week of faith for many in Plymouth Township and the surrounding community. For me personally, I would like to think that my faith has not necessarily been restored, but I do believe that it has been reinvigorated. It has been another week where I have witnessed so many selfless acts by so many people. The outpouring of support that my officers receive on a daily basis is almost beyond description. Just this week a local resident dropped off dozens of homemade cloth masks for not only my officers, but for their families as well. The only thing she asked in return was for a promise to call her if we ever needed more. This is only one example of the generosity that I have seen firsthand.

As most of you are already aware, many experts have predicted that this week and the next one will likely be worse than those that have already passed. I ask each and every one of you to continue to follow the safety guidelines repeatedly put out by the health professionals. Stay home, keep your distance, and wear a mask when you must go outside. The vast majority of you are doing so, but there are still many who are not.

The Police Department continues to be fully staffed with no reductions in service. I am thankful for another week in which I did not have any shifts missed due to illness.  I am aware that not every household in Plymouth Township has been as fortunate. Our thoughts are with you.

If you are aware of any resident who may be in need of non-emergency assistance, please contact the Plymouth Township Police Department at 610.279.1901 and ask for the on duty Lieutenant. If a neighbor is having difficulty in buying food, or paying a utility bill, my Department stands ready to try and assist.

A Message from the Chief of Police-30 March 2020

Once again, I wanted to reach out to the Plymouth Township residents and our business partners for the third time in as many weeks. Another week of hardship for many and another week of immense pride for me personally. I am proud of this community for their continued support of the women and men of this Department. It is well known that you can learn all that you need to know about a person, or a community, during a time of crisis. Over the last few weeks, I have learned a lot. The support and the generosity have humbled me and I am truly grateful.

The elected officials, Township Manager, Department leaders and I all continue to meet on a daily basis. I also remain in daily contact with our partners at the County, State and Federal level. This was the case last week, and it will continue on this week and as long as necessary.

I am also pleased to report on another issue that is unchanged from last week. My Department remains fully staffed with no reductions in service. Since my message a week ago, the Plymouth Township Police Department has not had any officer miss a shift due to illness.  We have also obtained additional personal protective equipment to safeguard our employees, while always being mindful that other emergency workers are in need of this very same type of equipment. I am doing my best to protect this community through protecting my Department, in a way that is just, moral and responsible.

If you are aware of any resident, elderly or those with special needs, who may be in need of non-emergency assistance, please contact the Plymouth Township Police Department at 610.279.1901 and ask for the on duty Lieutenant. My Department stands ready to assist with services that may not normally be considered a law enforcement function. I have also included a link to the Governor’s business closure directive as it has been a source of confusion for many.

A Message from the Chief of Police-23 March 2020

As we enter another week of uncertainty for our community, I once again wanted to take the time to reach out to the citizens and our business partners in Plymouth Township. Over the last several days my department has been contacted multiple times with offers of assistance and I, along with my officers, are truly thankful.

On a daily basis, I meet with the Township Manager, Council members and the leaders of the various departments to work on any current issues. From the beginning, the Township has taken the Covid-19 threat seriously and has acted accordingly. I am also in constant contact with our County and State partners throughout the day.

The Police Department continues to operate, fully staffed and with no reduction in services. Over the last week, we have been able to obtain additional personal protective gear for our officers. This equipment will keep the officers and the community safer as we move forward.

We remain open and ready to serve. Feel free to contact the Plymouth Township Police Department at 610.279.1901 if you have any non-emergency needs. Ask for the on duty Lieutenant for assistance. As always, in an emergency call 911.

I would again like to remind you that additional information can be located through our partners at the County, State and Federal levels.

A Message from the Chief of Police

During this time of uncertainty for both this region and our nation, I wanted to take a moment to reach out to the residents of Plymouth Township and those who come under our care.

My first priority is to assure you that the men and women of the Plymouth Township Police Department are committed to providing you with the services that you have come to expect and deserve. The Police Department is still fully operational with no interruptions to service. The department’s staffing levels have not been affected and protective gear has been issued.

Out of an abundance of caution, some restrictions have been placed on access to the Plymouth Township municipal building; however citizens still have full access to the Police Department.

I would also like to remind you that additional information can be located through our partners at the County, State and Federal levels.
