Plumstead Township Community Crime Bulletin
Through the Plumstead Township Website the Plumstead Township Police Department has created a Crime Bulletin. This website will be utilized when residents need to be alerted to crime happening in and around their neighborhoods.

The Crime Bulletin will provide citizens with the opportunity to make their neighborhoods safer and improve the quality of life. Through the use of this website the Police Department will be able to communicate and alert you to possible crime taking place in and around your neighborhood. Observation and awareness is the key to preventing crime.

Some tips to follow are:

  • Be suspicious. Report any unusual or suspicious behavior to the police. Write down descriptions of the person(s) and license number of any vehicles.
  • Keep a trusted neighbor informed if your house will be unoccupied for an extended period. It is important to leave that neighbor a way of reaching you if an emergency should arise.
  • Look after your neighbor's house when they are away, and ask them to look after yours. This includes collecting mail, newspapers and other deliveries that would indicate at a glance that no one is home.
  • The Plumstead Township Police Department will also provide an additional patrol past your home if you fill out and submit to us the House Check form for when you are away. This form can be obtained on this website or at Police Headquarters.
  • Above all, be concerned. It is the most effective way to reduce or prevent crime and make your neighborhood safe. Often times, spending a few extra seconds watching strangers walking, or driving through your neighborhood is enough to prevent many crimes.

Remember...
Your job is to report crime. The responsibility for apprehending criminals belongs to the police.
