If any of our residents or followers know anything, please come forward, this poor child (yes child) was days away from her birthday ….. don’t let this horrific and tragic incident go unsolved ……

Officers responded to the area of Colwyn Avenue and Apple Street just after 9:15 p.m. Friday for a report of a shooting. The victim, a 16-year-old female from Philadelphia sustained a gunshot wound and succumbed to her injury at Penn Presbyterian Hosptial a short time later. A suspect remains at large and at this time there is no known motive.

Investigators with the Delaware County District Attorney’s Office and Colwyn Borough Police have worked around the clock since Friday night to piece together what led up to the female’s death.

Sometimes a storied history unfortunately comes with tragedy…..

Our hearts are filled with sorrow and we stand with our fellow officers at Folcroft Borough Police Department to have learned of the passing of retired Chief of Police Edward Christie. Chief Christie served the residents of Folcroft as a police officer for 25 years with distinction. After retirement, Chief Christie went on to become a District Justice for the residents of Folcroft as well. Chief Christie was the epitome of a quality police officer and a consummate gentleman. He was a friend to a number of our more senior officers as well as officers across this county. Our thoughts and prayers to the members of the Folcroft Borough Police Department as well as the entire Christie family. Rest easy Chief.

At approximately 8:51 this evening (6/18/2021) Darby Township Police were dispatched to the Forman Mills for a reported car jacking at gunpoint. A vehicle description was quickly broadcast as well as actor information. Our observant law enforcement partners at Colwyn Borough Police Deparment were able to locate the vehicle traveling in their town occupied by the two actors and gave chase into the City of Philadelphia where both actors fled the vehicle. One actor was taken into custody just 10 minutes after the call was initially dispatched. We wish to thank the officers working Colwyn Borough Police Deparment tonight as well as ALL of the assisting agencies for their help in this apprehension.

Please see the attached photos in reference to dates and times for the possibility of your street being being resurfaced. The dates are between June 18th and June 25. If you reside in 19036, you are listed under the “Northern End” and if you reside in 19079 you are listed under the “Southern End”. There is also a small paragraph to read with regard to moving your vehicles, barricades, walking on freshly paved roads, etc. And before anyone posts negative comments about the driveways being replaced, you are on the wrong page. We are doing our best to work with residents who will now be having their driveways done at the same time their street may be done as well.

The members of the Darby Township Police Department were saddened to hear of the passing of Delaware County Park Police Chief Scott Mahoney last night.

Chief Mahoney began his career as a park police patrolman in 1992, he rose through the ranks until reaching the position of Chief in 2019.

Chief Mahoney also worked as a patrolman in a part time capacity for Aldan, Clifton Heights, Colwyn and Millbourne and was a volunteer firefighter in Upper Darby as well and has helped shape the minds of many police officers across Delaware County.

Chief Mahoney was a consummate professional and gentleman in the 30 years he served the public as well as in life.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Mahoney family, the members (both past and present) of the Delaware County Park Police Department, and our law enforcement partners across the county as well as there is not a police department Chief Mahoney hasn’t interacted with or impacted in some way or another.

Rest easy Chief.

When are you going to start ticketing cars for no parking stickers... not fair to us who follow the township rules... same cars parked overnight on the street with no stickers.... 😡😡😡 this has been going on since last March.... Not fair!!!!
To the Darby Township Police Dept. I would like to that all of you for attending the funeral service of John B. Ryan on Dec 3. 2002. He will be sadly missed. But I'm sure he was smiling down on you all. Thank You again. And stay safe to my friend's.
Just want you guys to know what your 1st ward Elected official posted on Facebook if yoh didnt know.
Praying for each and every officer who is out on the streets: GOD, we pray that each one is covered by your grace and mercy. I am thankful for their due diligence and sacrifices they make on a daily basis. Protect them LORD from all hurt harm danger and diseases. We are forever grateful in JESUS NAME AMEN
Has any thought been given to delay the no parking during street cleaning that starts April 1? There will be a lot of residents home if things don’t change. Just asking? It may be a good idea and send a positive message to the community.
Tried to call about overnight parking tonight, and last night, could not leave a voicemail... 
So as I sit wide awake replaying today's events, I couldn't let the night close without expressing my and my son's extreme gratitude to the Darby Twp Police, especially Officer Lance Csanady. My son and his friends were playing football @ the field today, and my son's, along with his friends had their 2 iPhones and 2 bikes stolen. They of course panicked and alerted us, and one of the parents drove around looking for the kids as well as their stolen property. But with the dedication, and the stellar police work by the Darby Twp. Police dept, and again the amazing Officer Lance Csanady, and assistance by the one parent's phone app (Life 360)the thieves were located and apprehended, and now arrested. All the boys got their phones and bikes back and justice was served. However, I am still saddened that our children had to go through this ordeal, and I will pray the young thieves seek a better way of life. Thank You again Darby Twp Police, I am so proud to have grown up in Briarcliffe, and happy to raise my children here, knowing the officers are here protecting us and our neighborhood.
Can anyone tell me what's going on in the 200-400 block of Rively Ave Glenolden DT??
A shout out to Darby Twp police! They stopped a situation from getting volatile all while in a heavy downpour and lightening overhead. Thank you!
Kudos to Darby Township Police Department for checking the parks for drug related items. We have many children playing in the parks now and we dont need any unwanted issues and incidents for our neignborhood children.
Is there a noise ordinance for Darby Township?
