Hatfield Township Administration:

As recommended by the Pennsylvania Department of Health and Montgomery County Officials, all Hatfield Township non-essential staff will be working remotely and access to the Township building will be limited.

All public safety personnel will continue to serve as usual. However, we want our Hatfield Township Police Department officers to remain healthy and safe so please give them a break over these next two weeks. Let's all be good neighbors and check on each other and make sure those who are most vulnerable to this virus have essentials to make it through these uncharted waters.

Update from Chief Tierney (Thursday, March 19th)

We are a few days into this major event, for this moment in time we are all sharing something in common. I wanted to take a minute to thank you, our residents and the public in general, for the great cooperation you have shown our Officers. These are very trying times, but I see the willingness to help coming through. From our Food Bank collections to the overall pleasant attitude I have observed in people, it makes a trying time easier for all of us. 

Thank you for the concern you have shown in emails and phone calls to the Department, so many calls asking how we are doing. That means a lot to our Officers and Staff, please be aware that we send that back to you as well.

In ending, we remain committed to doing all we can to help you through this crisis. We are here, thankfully healthy, and we will be here throughout. Thank you again for your cooperation. Take care.

Update from Chief Tierney (Friday, March 13th)


As the crisis continues to evolve, we had to make some more adjustments in how we handle things both inside and outside of the Department.

As of today, officers will be handling most of their calls via phone. This will limit the actual physical contacts they normally have on a daily basis. In reality, this isn't too far off what most of you experience with us anyway as the bulk of our contact is by phone.

As of Monday, March 16th, we will be handling walk up calls in a different manner. If you respond to the station, please press the clearly visible button on the wall outside the front door. This will immediately connect you with a 911 dispatcher who can then direct an Officer to you. We are working to keep an Officer free to handle walk up complaints, which could change as the environment changes. This is our current practice on weekends and holidays so this isn't necessarily a big change. It will cut down on interaction with our Staff, which is the goal. 

We are making some internal changes so we can be more ready to handle your needs, the last thing we want is Officers going out with the virus. We want to remain fully staffed so we can provide the best service for our residents.

In ending, please take care, be patient with each other and us. We will certainly return that to you, both now and when we get back to our normal activity. The measures we are taking are meant to protect all of you as well.  I certainly appreciate your willingness to work with us. Take care.
