·         Fill a plastic milk carton with water and put it in your freezer for a source of longer lasting “cold” if the electricity goes off. Use two and relocate one to your refrigerator to make food last longer.

  West Brandywine Police Department to patrol Wallace Township

In January 2016, the Wallace and West Brandywine Supervisors were able to announce a joint agreement with regard to police services.  In 2016, that agreement authorized West Brandywine Police Department to provide traffic enforcement in Wallace Township.

In 2017, the Supervisors approved expanding WBPD’s role from just traffic enforcement to regular patrol hours.  West Brandywine Police will now patrol Wallace for 40 hours per week, and will be the Townships "on call" police force during those hours; providing response to all calls and actively patrolling neighborhoods and parks, etc.  The 40 hours will be broken up between day and evening shifts, and also include weekends.  Pennsylvania State Police have done a fantastic job for Wallace over the years, and we look forward to continuing that relationship in the future.  If you have an emergency, call 911 and the police force currently on duty will automatically be dispatched.  For non emergency calls, you can contact either Pennsylvania State Police at 610-486-6280, or West Brandywine Police Dept at 610-380-8201.
