Community Information from Cheyney University
The Cheyney University vs. Lincoln University Football Game is scheduled for Saturday, September 5, 2015. Since this game usually draws a large attendance, barricades and attendants will be located at College Hill Drive, Township Drive and the entrance to Squire Cheyney Farm Park to safeguard that these areas are accessed by local residents and are not used as parking areas by football spectators.

The West Chester Area Council of Governments is proud to announce that another year of Neighborhood University is set to begin in September. This free program offers the opportunity to learn about local government, tour public facilities, and better understand available municipal services and resources. The goal is to provide area residents with the tools necessary to be better advocates for their community. Neighborhood University of Greater West Chester is open to any resident or business owner, age 16 or older, from one of the participating communities: East Bradford Township, East Goshen Township, Thornbury Township (Chester County), West Chester Borough, West Goshen Township, West Whiteland Township and Westtown Township. Local officials will cover topics including the structure of local government in Pennsylvania, public safety, zoning and land development, trails and open space, stormwater management, transportation, Public Works infrastructure and public finance. Enrollment has begun and class size is limited. Sessions will be held on Thursdays from 7:00 to 9:00 pm in various locations throughout the Greater West Chester area. Once enrollment is confirmed the course schedule and session locations will be distributed to participants. For more info

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

Police Chief Bernot Report
There has been a recent and dramatic increase in residential burglaries in Chester and northern Delaware Counties. In comparing our investigative notes with other agencies, our detectives have determined that the perpetrators frequently knock on the front door of the residence to determine if the house is occupied. If the resident answers, the subject “creates” a story for knocking on the door (sales person, asking for directions, etc.). If the resident does not answer, the subject goes to the rear of the house (or another less visible location) and makes forced entry into the house. In several cases (including one in Westtown Township), the subject has made forced entry into a residence that was occupied – creating a frightening and potentially dangerous situation for the resident. Because of the elevated risk associated with this type of crime, we are asking residents to take some action to ensure that subjects approaching a house in this manner are aware that the house is occupied. Residents can take many actions to accomplish this without opening the door: pulling the blinds/curtains aside without opening the door; standing inside a closed door and loudly telling the person that you will not open the door and asking them to leave, etc.

Residents who observe any suspicious behavior, including the behavior described above, should immediately dial 911 to contact the police.
