The Upper Gwynedd Township Police Department has joined the CRIMEWATCH Network! One of the most exciting aspects of CRIMEWATCH is that we will be able to build on our extraordinary relationship with our community.
Beginning tomorrow, 1-28-2020 Garfield Avenue between South broad Street and West Point Pike will be CLOSED TO ALL THROUGH TRAFFIC from 7AM-5PM Monday through Friday for the next 3-4 weeks. This is required so that sanitary sewer line installation can be completed. The detour route will be Park Road. As there is no traffic light at either end of Park Road drivers should expect delays and plan accordingly.
We use Crimewatch to share information. Arrest information and arrest photos are public records so we do share that information. We have decided to stop arrest information from appearing on our Facebook and Twitter accounts. We will continue to post suspect photos and warrant photos on those platforms to assist in our investigations.
Due to the temperature drop and wet roads, we are experiencing and icy roadways. Our Road Crew and PennDOT are responding. Please allow extra travel time this morning. Please slow down and anticipate your stops and turns.
