It is the mission of the North Coventry Police Department to provide professional, courteous, and prompt police service to all people while vigorously, but fairly, enforcing the law. To further its mission, the North Coventry Police Department strives to establish a safe community by providing the public with a vast array of community-based programs and training.
North Coventry Township is located at the northern end of Chester County, bordering both Berks County to its west and Montgomery County to its north.
The Township has a population of approximately 8,000 people, covers 14 square miles, and has over 60 miles of state and local roadways.
The North Coventry Police Department has twelve full-time officers, two part-time officers, a full-time Office Manager, and a part-time Fire Marshal. Officers serve in administrative or supervisory positions, two are criminal investigators, and ten are patrol officers. The Department's highly trained K-9 Unit is headed by Officer Jesse Smith.
The Police Department provides 24-hour police service to the community which is primarily rural with the exception of the Coventry Mall, located at Routes 724 and 100.
North Coventry Township is an accredited law enforcement agency under the Pennsylvania Law Enforcement Accreditation Commission program sponsored by the Pennsylvania Chiefs of Police Association. The department received its accredited status in July of 2008 and was the first law enforcement agency in Chester County to receive accreditation status after several years of preparation which included policy and procedure review and facilities upgrades. The accreditation process shows the community that the North Coventry Township Police Department operates in compliance with accepted professional standards and best practices for law enforcement. The department provides proof on an ongoing basis that it operates within these standards. North Coventry Township has also recently been reaccredited on June 2011.
