It was reported that a male was seen attempting to open a car door. Assistance was requested for Lower Providence Police and Upper Providence Police to help check the area. The suspicious male was not located after a search of the area. Two vehicles were stolen from the development and another vehicle was recovered in the development that was stolen from Lower Merion Twp. Both vehicles that were stolen were unlocked and the keys were left inside of them. One of the vehicles stolen was recoverd in Philadelphia. Please remember to lock your vehicles at night and take your keys inside of your residence even if you park your vehicle in a garage.

The Collegeville Borough Police Department put into service a 2017 Ford Interceptor earlier this week. We would like to thank TRM Emergency Vehicles LLC for up fitting of the lighting package and equipment in the interior of the vehicle. We also want to thank EDGE Signs and Graphics LLC for the work they did on lettering the vehicle. Both companies did a great job and were easy to work with.

On Sunday, May 14th Ursinus College will be holding their Commencement at 2PM. We are expecting heavy congestion in Collegeville Borough from 1PM until 5 PM in the area of the college. East Main Street will NOT be closed, but we are asking everyone to please avoid the area if possible between those hours on Sunday.

On Saturday, April 29th, the Collegeville Police Department will be participating in a drug take back day 10-2 that is sponsored by the Montgomery County DA and Montgomery County Police Chiefs. Bring in any unused or expired medications to our station. If you can't make it next Saturday, you can always drop off any medications during normal business hours.

The Collegeville Police Department is very thankful for the dedicated, professional dispatchers who work at the Montgomery County Communications Center. They ensure that our officers and the officers throughout the county are given timely, concise and oftentimes - life-saving information every single day. Without their calming voices on the other end of the radio - we would never be able to do the job we do on each and every call we go out on.

Yesterday, our department was visited by Girl Scout Troop 7945 from Holy Cross Regional School. They stopped by to bring us a basket full of cards and boxes of cookies. We want to thank them very much for the basket. Troop 7945 is welcome at our station anytime. We also would like to say we are sorry to our cleaners for all of the crumbs in the station. We will try better next time.

We always try to share and support worthwhile causes. Please consider helping this one. Thanks!
