February 18, 2015 – A message from West Grove Borough Police Chief Michael King:
The West Grove Borough Police Department provides primary police coverage in West Grove Borough, when officers are on duty. The Department is not 24/7 and hours of coverage vary. In our absence, The Pennsylvania State Police, Avondale Station, responds to calls for service in town.
Very often, voicemail messages, regarding incidents that require an immediate police response, are being left on the department answering machine. If WGPD personnel are not on duty at the time or are out on patrol, these important calls are missed.
In an effort to ensure that calls for police service are handled in the timeliest manner possible and to ensure that the appropriate agency is dispatched, we have changed our voicemail greeting to the following:
You have reached the West Grove Borough Police Department. IF THIS IS AN EMERGENCY, PLEASE HANG UP AND DIAL 911
If you have a non-emergency request that requires an immediate police response, PLEASE HANG UP AND DIAL CHESTER COUNTY POLICE RADIO at (610)268-3171.
If you have general information, questions, or inquiries and you are receiving this message, it means that officers are either on the street or not on duty. You can leave a detailed message and your call will be returned at the earliest opportunity.

Are you planning on selling your property? – If so, the Borough of West Grove adopted an ordinance that a Transfer Inspection must be done prior to settlement. The forms can be found on our website under Borough Information and Forms & Applications. You will need to print the Transfer of Property Application, the Transfer of Property Inspection List and the Sewer & Water Certification Form. The inspection is scheduled about one month prior to settlement to allow time in case of failing the inspection. Please follow everything on the Inspection List because that is what our Inspector will be inspecting. The Sewer & Water Certification is done a day or two prior to settlement so we can check the meter and get a reading so the sellers are billed for the water they have consumed before moving. If you have any questions, please call Trisha or Sharon at 610-869-2792. Thanks!
Are you planning on renting your property? – Have you decided to rent your house? If so, the Borough of West Grove adopted an ordinance that any property used as a rental in the Borough of West Grove must have a Rental Inspection completed prior to the tenant moving in. The forms can be found on our website under Borough Information and Forms & Applications. You will need to print the Residential Application Form, Page One, the Residential Application Form, Page Two, and the Residential Rental Inspection List. The inspections are done on Thursday mornings. The inspection is required once a year. If you have any questions, please call Trisha or Sharon at 610-869-2792. Thanks!
