The current concern of the COVID-19 (Corona Virus) is an unprecedented event that is constantly changing. I am in constant contact with Borough Officials, Delaware County Emergency services, Delaware County Chiefs of Police, Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 27, and health care providers over the ever changing status of the virus.

All Darby Borough public buildings are closed to the public thru at a minimum April 1, 2020. This action was implemented to ensure the safety of the public, our first responders, and borough employees.

The police department will remain fully staffed and will continue to patrol however in certain situations of non-priority calls officers will be handling these incidents by phone. If you have any flu like symptoms or have had contact with someone who has please notify the call taker when utilizing 911.

As more information becomes available we will immediately notify the public as to any changes.
