There will be an open house at the Yeadon Police Department between 5pm and 7pm on Tuesday, August 2nd 2016. Police will hand out crime prevention materials and provide tours of the Yeadon Police Department.

All residents and children are invited.

We also ask residents throughout Yeadon Borough and across the nation to lock their doors turn on outside lights and spend the evening outside with neighbors in supporting this crime prevention event. Block Watch groups are asked to stand together to promote awareness, safety and neighborhood unity. National Night Out showcases the vital importance of police-community partnerships and citizen involvement in our fight to build a safer community.

Crime Prevention – See it!  Hear it! Report it!  Call “911”                


CRIME PREVENTION is using INSTINCT, COMMON SENSE, and ACTION to eliminate or greatly reduce the criminal’s opportunity. A large share of the responsibility of reducing criminal opportunity lies with you! But the fact remains that we all have a personal part to play regarding crime prevention. Crime Prevention is everyone’s responsibility. Please Call “911”.

Thank you!

Police Incidents -Thefts From Vehicles
Published on March 8, 2016 by molineux4601

The Police Department continues to increase patrols in the community as a result of the February 11th 2016 police report of a rash of vehicle break-ins. The department has also focused additional patrols along the common driveways and in the specific areas were the February 11th incidents were reported. These thefts are often referred to as smash and grab incidents. Lock your doors to prevent car break-ins. Don't make the thief's job any easier by handing him an open door. Don’t leave property and valuables in plain view inside the vehicle.

If you are parking your vehicle in your driveway alongside or behind your home, make sure you park in a well-lit-area. Use flood lights that are on timers or motion sensor activated lights. These recent incidents have occurred during the early morning hours.   

Remember, police officers can’t be everywhere. Your cooperation with them is for the benefit of you, your neighbors and your neighborhood. Most important – all residents are asked to call “911” immediately if you see or hear anything suspicious.

By reporting these types of suspicious activities citizens can help police make their communities safer and more secure, reduce violence, minimize victimization, reduce crime and violence and improve the overall quality of life.
