The Police Department needs your help. We do not have an officer for every block or street. Therefore, we need you to watch out for your neighbors and to call the police about suspicious persons or vehicles and to report strange or destructive activities. Since we cannot be everywhere, we need your assistance to know where we have a problem in order to resolve it and better serve the community.

All of the officers of the Shillington Police Department look forward to hearing from and meeting our neighbors.
