The Narberth Police Department has reinstituted a Neighborhood Watch program. This program is a formalized means of organizing citizens to act as the eyes and ears of the police within the community. The program allows the police to alert citizens through the block captains of crimes re-occurring in certain areas. The program also serves to educate citizens on various crime prevention and detection methods. In order to become involved in the Neighborhood Watch program contact the Narberth Police Department at (610)664-8160.

Project Child Safe
Do you have a privately owned firearm in your home? Do you also have children in your home or children who visit your home? The NPD has free, cable style, gun locks along with safety instructions, for you to secure those firearms when they are not in use. Please use this valuable asset to protect those most precious to us! If you are even considering utilizing this free program, remember that children by nature are curious and as such will find even the best hidden firearms!
Halloween Safety Program
In order to address safety and awareness when celebrating Halloween, the Narberth Police Department has a program to give children safety tips while trick or treating. Halloween treats are given out to the general public Halloween night by members of the Narberth Police Department. Safety tips include the following:
- Try to trick or treat when it is still light outside
- Wear a costume that makes it easy for you to walk, see and be seen
- If you must go out at night, make sure your costume is light in color or reflective
- Carry a flashlight so you can see and be seen easily
- A facemask will keep you from seeing well. Take off your mask before crossing the street at the crosswalk
- Consider using make up instead of wearing a mask
- Have a parent or older brother or sister go trick or treating with you
- Plan your Trick or Treat route ahead of time. Pick streets that are well lighted.
- Cross only at corners or crosswalks; never cross between parked cars or in the middle of the block.
- If there is no sidewalk, walk facing traffic
- Wait until you get home to sort, check and eat your treats.
