"United to serve our communities with excellence"
The Southern Chester County Regional Police Department officially began on January 1st, 2017. When Chief Simpson asked the Board of Supervisors in January of 2014 if this was something he should research, he had no idea the journey or the work they had ahead of them but it has all been well worth it.
The name Southern Chester County Regional was adopted because we believe the region to be bigger than any one community and it implies an open welcome to potential future partners.
Partnering improves the delivery of public safety services in so many ways. The real benefit though is what Chief Simpson describes in a single word; "stabilization." Our critical areas of operation become stable and when that happens:
- The community becomes safer.
- The budget becomes predictable.
- The quality and level of service is enhanced.
- The police coverage becomes consistent.
But, most of all we are able to recruit, retain, and uniformly train our officers to meet the challenges of the 21st century.
We live in a world where partnerships are vital to success. While not always an easy process, our founding was best described as being better together than apart...
