9-1-1 Changes

Effective February 16, 2006, the Radnor Police Department transferred all dispatch duties to Delaware County. This means 9-1-1 must be dialed for all fire, ambulance, and emergency and non-emergency police matters, a change for residents who have called the Radnor Police directly in the past.

New System
When 9-1-1 is dialed, the call will go directly to Delaware County's dispatch center, where it will be answered, "Police, fire and ambulance." Once the call taker is provided with the necessary information - location, nature, and details of the incident - s/he will ensure that the appropriate emergency unit(s) will respond to the call.

The Radnor Police Department will be closed to walk-up traffic after 4 p.m. on weekdays and all day on weekends and holidays. If police assistance is required during those hours, 9-1-1 must be called. For non-emergency matters such as records, fingerprinting appointments, parking permits, staff traffic, alarm system registration, and the like, please call 610-688-0503 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. A receptionist will answer your call and direct you to the appropriate police personnel.
