OPERATION KEEP SAFE
In an effort to reduce underage and dangerous behavior along with random acts of vandalism and disorderly behavior, the Haverford Township Police Department has applied for and received a state funded grant to initiate programs to reduce these community issues. Operation Keep Safe is a multi-faceted approach utilizing education and prevention strategies to reduce underage and dangerous drinking and quality of life issues within the township.
As a part of Operation Keep Safe, the department established and will utilize a newly created enforcement program, P.L.E.A.S.E. (Problematic Location Enforcement And Site Evaluation), which will use two officers specifically trained in the area of underage and dangerous drinking. The department will use roving patrols and saturation enforcement to target predetermined problem areas.
The department has established a “Zero Tolerance” for township park ordinance and curfew violations, along with liquor law and drug violations. Officers will stop any and all persons found in township parks, playgrounds and school properties after posted hours. Persons found to be in violations of ordinances and posted signs will be cited.
Township Ordinance 126-2 prohibits any persons from being in Township parks, playgrounds and school properties from Dusk to 7 am. Township Ordinance 128-11 defines the curfew for individuals under the age of 18 as midnight to 5 am everyday.
This effort is the result of numerous complaints from citizens to help reduce the amount of acts of vandalism, nuisance crimes, and disorderly conduct that have been reported in these areas.
