Welcome to the Coatesville Area School District Police Department's ("CASDPD") web page. I hope you find this site informative and useful. The CASDPD pledges to provide all visitors to this page with pertinent information on student, school and community safety.
The Coatesville Area School District Police Department exists to support the educational mission of the District by ensuring the safety and security of the District’s students, staff and the entire Coatesville Area School District community. The Department motto, "Protecting The Future", is proudly displayed on the uniform shoulder patch and on the police vehicles. It is a succinct and direct statement of our mission.
The Department will be both responsive in addressing the District’s general & unique policing requirements and responsible in ensuring that its performance at all levels aligns with the highest of professional standards.
We will provide a reassuring, visible presence and provide professional, caring guidance and direction to District students and staff on crime and other public safety issues.
We will respond quickly to calls for assistance, reports of crimes and emergencies, and work closely with our local Law Enforcement partners and social service agencies to resolve issues that put the District’s educational mission at risk.
We will work diligently to analyze, understand and resolve public safety issues that have a direct bearing on the achievement of the District’s educational mission. We work hard towards promoting the interests of students and staff for an environment in which education can thrive.
