Who do I call if I don't call 911?
Are you in West Chester Borough or East Bradford Township?

Unless you need an immediate response to a fire or a medical or police emergency, call the West Chester Police Department at 610-696-2700.

For any other location in Chester County you should call 610-692-5100. Using the non-emergency number keeps 911 available for true emergencies.

Some examples of times in which you should call a non-emergency number are:

  • Your house or car was broken into yesterday or at unknown time
  • Your runaway or missing child has returned home
  • You need to add additional information to a previously reported incident
  • Someone stole your bicycle while you were away
  • There is a illegally parked or abandoned vehicle on your street
