"United to serve our communities with excellence"

Public Service Announcement - Grant Award

The Southern Chester County Regional Police Department is pleased to announce that we have received a grant award for 2018-2019 to fund a School Resource Officer position.  The position is new to the police organization.  The $60,000.00 grant was received from the PA Department of Education, but required a partnership with the Kennett Consolidated School District.  This was no challenge at all, as the police department and school district have enjoyed a strong and harmonious relationship.     

The program will focus on school facilities within New Garden Township for the purposes of increasing safety, building positive police interactions and the handling of matters on the school campuses.  Additionally, the program will embrace a global approach towards problem-solving endeavoring to increase campus safety for all the Kennett Consolidated School District facilities.

The Southern Chester County Regional Police Department has selected a police department veteran, PFC Mario Raimato, to lead the School Resource Officer program which will begin on November 5, 2018.  Please take a moment to learn a little bit about PFC Raimato by reading his biography.  PFC Raimato’s Biography
