  • 1 Supervisor of Parking and Auxiliary Services
  • 2 Administrative Assistants
  • 4 Part Time Meter Inspectors
  • 9 Crossing Guards

Assignments


Officers are assigned to either the Detective Bureau, Highway Patrol and Traffic Safety, or Patrol Divisions. In a typical year, our police vehicles log about 326,000 miles in routine patrols of Township streets and neighborhoods - about 900 miles of patrolling every day of the year. 

The Radnor Police Department also maintains a Bike Patrol Unit, is a member of the Central Delaware County SWAT team with 4 SWAT Officers, as well as participating in the Delaware County Drug Task Force. The cornerstone of the Radnor Police Department is community based and oriented policing. In 2014 the Radnor Police Department responded to over 16,000 911 calls. 

Officer Friendly


As part of the department's "community policing" philosophy, the crime prevention unit regularly presents "Officer Friendly" programs to school students. Additionally the "Town Watch," a volunteer organization formed in 1977, patrols Radnor streets and alerts the police to possible trouble spots. The Radnor Police also provide seminars throughout the year which are advertised on the our website.

Award


The Police Department was selected as the "Best Police Force on the Main Line and in Philadelphia's Western Suburbs" in a reader's poll of Main Line Today magazine. It has also received the Governor's Highway Safety Award for innovations in promoting safe driving.
