The purpose of the emergency notification form is to provide the police department with a list of names and telephone numbers of people to contact in the event of a problem with your residence (during alarm activation) or business (during non-business hours).


The alarm installation application form is used to provide the police department with information on residents and business utilizing alarm systems in West Brandywine Township.

Roadside Clean Ups

The adopt a road program has been in effect for some years but we have minimal participates to clean up numerous roads. The weather is getting nicer but some of the road sides are beginning to look like a landfill. The amount of trash that falls out of trash cans or recycling cans each week is astounding. In severe windy conditions, cans and bins are blown over spilling out the contents which eventually are not picked up and left on the roadside. Also trash may come out of a trash truck driving by or discourteous driver may throw trash from the window. I would like to encourage residents to police their property and roadside areas and pick up loose lying garbage on the roadside. This would help cut down on the amount of garbage left behind and make the township and your property more presentable. If you are interested in adopting a road, please contact me to fill out an application. The township provides bags, gloves, signs and vests and will even come out to pick up the collected garbage. The only thing needed is manpower. Even if you choose not to adopt a road but would like to do a one time clean up, that is also welcomed. There is no minimum to a pick up, it can be just one person who would like to donate their time.

The following roads are in desperate need of clean up and have no one actively conducting litter removal.

1) Highspire Road

2) Icedale Road

3) Swineheart Road (State Road but twp will assist in supplies)

4) Lafayette Road  

5) Route 322 (State Road but twp will assist in supplies)

6) Little Washington Road (State Road but twp will assist in supplies)

7 )Route 82 between Rt 322 and Hibernia (State road but twp will assist in supplies)

Please email me if your are interested in this program.

Special Adopt a Road Clean up , Route 82

The township Adopt a Road program is currently looking for volunteers to help conduct a roadside clean up on Route 82, between Union Road and Route 340. This section of Route 82 is dangerous and can not be adopted through the Department of Transportation.

The last time there was a clean up for this section was in 2008 and is in desperate need of a cleaning. There is a heavy amount of trash on both sides of the road, which really is an eye sore to passing motorists and visitors to the Township. I would like to schedule a pick up some time this year, but it can't be done with out the help of dedicated volunteers who want to give some time to keep their community beautiful and pride in helping the environment.

The supplies will be provided and the Police Department can help the day of the pick up with traffic control and crew safety. If someone would like to head this up, please email me and let me know. If your an individual or a group wanting to help out, and your over the age of 8, please email me of the interest. Together, we can make a difference in keeping our Township beautiful.
