The Chester Police Department offers a program for the recovery of missing persons, particularly those with memory loss, a telephone call-in welfare check for the elderly and others who may feel a need to participate and a house check service for residents away on vacation. All residents should feel free to participate in any of these programs. Officers are also available to speak with local community groups about various Law Enforcement topics.
The Chester Police Department has proudly taught the Law Enforcement Against Drugs (L.E.A.D.–formerly D.A.R.E.) program in our schools for over thirty years. The program is currently taught by two of our dedicated School Resource Officers (SROs), as well as members of the Detective Bureau.
