School Bus Safety
 It is illegal to pass a school bus that is stopped to load or unload children.
 School buses use yellow flashing lights to alert motorists that they are preparing to stop to load or unload children. Red flashing lights and an extended stop sign arm signals to motorists that the bus is stopped and children are getting on or off the bus.
 Pennsylvania law requires that traffic in both directions stop on undivided roadways when students are entering or exiting a school bus.
 Never pass a school bus on the right. It is illegal and could have tragic consequences.

Police Scams

WEGO Police Press Release
The Westtown-East Goshen Regional Police Department is seeking public assistance with a string of residential burglaries in the area.

On September 22, 2015 the Westtown-East Goshen Regional Police Department responded to discovered burglary in the 1000 block of South New Street in Westtown Township. Police responded to this residence for an activated burglar alarm at 4:23 PM and arrived to find the front door forced open and loose jewelry on the front step. The homeowner arrived home and confirmed that a jewelry box was removed from the master bedroom.

On September 22, 2015 at 4:29 PM the Westtown-East Goshen Regional Police Department responded to a home in the 1100 block of Westbourne Road in Westtown Township at 4:29 PM for an attempted burglary. The homeowner received a call from his alarm company at 4:00 PM and drove home to investigate the activation and found his front door damaged. The homeowner called police who arrived and completed a search of the residence. It was determined that no entry was gained into this home. A person living next to this residence arrived home at 3:49 PM and it is believed that the burglary suspect may have been scared away.

On September 22, 2015 at 6:13 PM the Westtown-East Goshen Regional Police Department responded to a home in the 300 block of Old Bailey Lane in Thornbury Township for a discovered burglary. Police arrived and met with a family member who discovered the rear door of the residence forced open. Police learned that the homeowner received a call from their alarm company at 3:48 PM for a shatter activation. The homeowner was informed by the alarm company that there was no motion sensor activation so they directed the alarm company to not call police. Police searched the residence and then the homeowner completed a search and reported that no property was taken during the burglary.

On September 22, 2015 at 3:03 PM the Westtown-East Goshen Regional Police Department spoke with a resident living in the 800 block of East Sage Road in Westtown Township for a suspicious condition. The homeowner reported that her children were at home when a suspicious white male individual in his 30’s appeared at the front door. When the child responded to knocking at the front door, the suspicious white male appeared shocked that someone was home and indicated that he was there for roof work. The child told the individual to leave and then closed and locked the door. When the child looked outside once the door was locked the person was gone and no vehicle was seen leaving the area.

Police believe that the person committing these crimes is selecting homes that appear to be vacant and that the offender approaches the home and knocks on the door before forcing entry into the home. Police are asking residents to remain vigilant and to immediately call 911 with any incident where an unexpected person makes contact with them at their home. Residents are urged to try and document the physical description of the individual and vehicle. Police are asking residents with video systems to also check their system for activity during the afternoon hours on September 22, 2015.

The Westtown-East Goshen Regional Police Department is working with members of the Pennsylvania State Police-Media Barracks who are investigating similar crimes just south of Westtown Township and Thornbury Township.
