Police Department

Responsibilities & Services

The Downingtown Police Department (DPD) now provides police coverage not only to our shopping centers, which is paid for by the shopping centers, but now covers all the remainder of the township. The DPD patrol cars can now be seen with the slogan, "Serving Downingtown and East Caln." All of the additional coverage has been funded at no additional increase in your property tax or income tax.
