West Vincent Elementary opens on Tuesday, September 2. The Police Department has a few tips for you and your children to help keep them safe:
- Proceed slowly and with caution; be especially careful in residential neighborhoods and school zones. We strictly enforce the speed limit through the school zone so be sure to obey the posted speed limit or face a hefty fine, plus points on your driving record!
- Never pass a school bus with red flashing lights activated as this, too, may lead to fines and points
- Enter/exit driveways and alleys slowly, looking in all directions for pedestrians; be extra vigilant looking for very young children who may be too small to see in your rearview mirror
- Put down your phone - don’t talk or text while driving, reduce distractions inside your vehicle so you can concentrate on the road and your surroundings
Parents, Remind Your Children to:
- Always stop and look both ways before stepping onto the roadway
- Cross the street within crosswalks, if possible
- Never run or walk into the street from between parked cars
- When exiting the school bus, always walk in front of the stopped school bus where the driver can see them and check that no vehicles are passing the bus before walking across the opposing lane of traffic.
On Saturday October 4, 2014, from 8:00 A.M. to Noon, the Sustainability Committee will be sponsoring a yard sale in the Park for residents of West Vincent Township.
Do you have multiples of a useful item, possibly a little too much of a really good thing? Here's your chance to lighten up the attic, basement and garage! Even better, it's an opportunity to showcase your talent in crafting, woodworking, and gardening. That burgeoning collection of fishing flies or flower frogs does need pruning once in a while. The time has come.
Spaces are free. Bring your own table and chair, and maybe an umbrella. All residents of West Vincent are welcome, but must call to reserve a space, as these are limited. Each space is large enough for an 8 ft. table and for your vehicle parked behind it. Set-up begins at 7:00 A.M. 610-458-1601 for details and for some table rental recommendations if you need them.

West Vincent Township Police Department is pleased to announce the installation of a MedReturn Drug Collection Box in their Township Building. Residents from West Vincent and surrounding communities now have the convenience of safely and anonymously disposing of their unwanted/outdated prescriptions, OTC medications, vitamins and even pet medicines!

The event was held annually at a location convenient to northern Chester County residents. The Department feels very fortunate to now be able offer this service, right here, all year long!
West Vincent Police Department is committed to reducing drug abuse and keeping the environment safe. We encourage those in the community to take advantage of this program.
