I n an effort to be more responsive and provide greater service to our community, the Thorndale Police Department has developed new ways to reach an officer.

In an emergency, critical incident or urgent need of assistance, please call 911.

An emergency is any situation that requires immediate assistance from the police, fire department or ambulance. Examples include a fire, crime or suspicious activity, car crash or a medical emergency, such as someone who is unconscious, gasping for air or not breathing, experiencing an allergic reaction, having chest pain, uncontrollable bleeding, or any other symptoms that require immediate medical attention. If you’re not sure whether the situation is a true emergency, we recommend you call 911 and let the dispatcher or call-taker determine whether you need emergency help.
