Important Changes to Police 911 System

Effective August 1, 2006, the Marple Township Police Department transferred all dispatch duties to the Delaware County 911 Center. This means that 911 must be dialed for all fire, ambulance, and emergency and non-emergency police matters, a change for residents who have called the Marple Township Police directly in the past.

When 911 is dialed, the call will go directly to Delaware County's dispatch center, where it will be answered, "Police, fire and ambulance." Once the call taker is provided with the necessary information - location, nature, and details of the incident, the call taker will ensure that the appropriate emergency unit(s) will respond to the call.

The Marple Township Police Department Records Division is open on weekdays between 8:30 AM and 4:30 PM. The Records Division Staff is closed on holidays and week ends. If police assistance is required during those hours, 911 must be called. For non-emergency matters such as records, alarm system registration, fingerprinting, and other administrative matters, please call 610-356-1500, extension 222 Monday through Friday from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM. A receptionist will answer your call and direct you to the appropriate police personnel. After those hours, there may be no personnel available at the Police Station to assist you.

Most importantly, remember to always dial 911 for all fire, ambulance, and emergency police matters.
