The Chester Police Department currently consists of twenty-three officers under the command of Chief Ryan McNamee. The Police Department prides itself on being proactive and serving as a valuable resource and partner in bettering our community. We are dedicated to providing our officers with the best possible training to professionally and effectively serve our citizens and those requiring our assistance.
Education and training have always been, and remains, a hallmark of the Chester Police Department. Of the current membership, six Command level officers have completed Staff and Command Leadership Training classes. All officers are trained in basic tactical response, four officers are traffic accident re-constructionists, four are certified Law Enforcement Against Drugs (L.E.A.D.– formerly D.A.R.E.) instructors, and two officers are certified Drug Recognition Experts. All officers are trained in basic First Aid including heart defibrillation and sixteen of our officers are Emergency Medical Technicians trained in advanced life support skills. In addition, we have two officers certified in Car Seat Installation.
