GREAT NEWS! Stay-at-home & social distancing orders are “flattening the curve” of COVID-19 across Pennsylvania! We’ve noticed a lot less traffic, which shows you’re doing your part! Unfortunately, we’ve *also* noticed a dangerous side effect on our roadways – and we need your help!
Some motorists seem to be interpreting the decrease in traffic as an invitation to speed, or disregard traffic lanes, signs, or signals. And while we are seeing less crashes on the roadways, the crashes that are occurring are often worse than normal, no doubt a result of these contributing factors. We remind you that ALL of Pennsylvania’s traffic laws remain in effect, and WILL be enforced when a violation presents a risk to public safety.
We ask that you continue to do your part by not only traveling only when essential, but also helping to keep officers and our public safety partners safe & socially distant by obeying all traffic laws and speed limits when you must!

We would like to take this time to thank all the brave men and women who protect and serve our communities here in Chester County.
Law enforcement officers are husbands, wives, sons, daughters, mothers and fathers. Every day, these individuals leave their homes and loved ones to uphold the oath they took to protect and serve our communities, not knowing what will happen during the course of their shift. Please take the time to thank them and others who work hard each day to help and protect us.
