WPD General Orders:

SafeWatch Whitemarsh:
Whitemarsh Residents can voluntarily register with Whitemarsh PD to provide camera footage when a criminal investigation takes place in their neighborhood.  Registration does NOT give Whitemarsh Police direct access to your equipment, but provides officers and detectives with a list of addresses that have camera equipment or smart door bell systems that may provide valuable evidence.  Interested residents may complete the registration form HERE.

Completed forms may be sent to tforsyth@whitemarshpd.org or faxed to (610) 825-5078.  Residents with questions can reach the Police at the non-emergency line: (610) 825-5078
