About Us


The Parkesburg Borough Police Department provides police services to the Borough of Parkesburg, Chester County, Pennsylvania.  In addition, the municipalities of Highland Township, Kennett Township and Avondale Borough are contracted partners with Parkesburg Borough and are provided police services through municipal agreements.  The total population served is roughly 15,500 residents.  

Our agency is comprised of an administrative and clerical support staff, a Patrol Division, Criminal Investigations Unit, Drug Enforcement Unit, Traffic Safety and Commercial Vehicle Unit, Community Policing/Public Relations/Professional Standards Unit and actively participates in various multi-jurisdictional and regional policing objectives; including the Chester County Regional Emergency Response Team and the Chester County DUI Task Force.

The department is active within the community’s organizations and participates with many of the service groups in the Parkesburg region.  The department’s Citizen’s Police Academy offers a unique perspective into the duties and responsibilities of policing in Chester County.  The department has graduated groups of well informed and community oriented residents that better understand their responsibility within the community and support the mission of their police force.
