PSA Attn: Borough residents, It is, again, that time of the year for criminals to be out and about lurking in the dark stealing from vehicles. Last night there was another "rash" of theft from vehicles. It appears it may not have just been the Borough that was hit, so if you have relatives in neighboring areas please pass along the information to them. Again, a reminder to you all to keep your vehicles locked at all times you are not in them or in direct eye sight. The criminals are committing crimes of opportunity. With you leaving your vehicle unlocked it is presenting them with the opportunity to easily gain access inside. Please, if possible, bring all valuable items with you inside at night. This includes phones, tablets, GPS, laptops, guns, ect. A good habit to get into that can help the Police if you become a victim of theft is to record serial numbers for anything you find valuable to "YOU." People have different opinions on what is important to them. If all else fails record serial numbers for everything you own. This allows the Police to enter the items into a National database. If another Dept. locates an item they can run the serial number and know it was stolen from our Borough. As always please report any suspicious activity to us! Thank you and be safe!!

The Shillington Police need your help to identify these four (4) young males who threw rocks and broke 2 windows of a property on Catherine St that occurred on April 18, 2017 at approximately 9PM. Please call 610-777-3947 if you recognize them. Thank you!!

Attention Residents: As a friendly reminder please ensure your homes are secure. There have been reports of residential burglaries in the surrounding areas where access is gained through unlocked doors. It appears most, if not all, were conducted in that way. Something as simple as checking all of your door locks, window locks, and bilco doors could be an easy deterrent for criminals. Please do not forget to lock your vehicle doors when you are not in and/or near them. This is also if you just need to run into your home to grab something and are returning back to leave. It provides an easy opportunity for a thief to open it up and grab out your belongings. As always contact the Dept. if you see anything suspicious. Thank you!

As an FYI, If you would like to show your support for Law Enforcement we have received a fresh new box of blue ribbons at the PD. You may pick them up during normal business hours.

Attention Residents: Over the course of the past couple of weeks there have been reports of theft of packages from residences. In some instances the packages have been located elsewhere and were returned to their owners, thankfully, with their contents still inside. Unfortunately, this is the time of year when these types of crimes begin to occur. Theft of packages, bicycles, and theft from vehicles. It appears the criminals are waking from hibernation. As a reminder please ensure you lock your vehicles at all times when not in immediate proximity. A suggestion with packages being delivered is to request the carrier to place packages out of sight and not directly in front of the front door. As always please contact the PD if you observe anything suspicious and try to obtain as much information about the person, persons, or vehicle as you can. DO NOT approach them. Thank you!
