  • Dedication ceremony for new Dover police station is May 6

    posted on: 4/29/2016

    Chief Anthony F. Colarusso, Jr. and the Dover Police Facility Building Committee are pleased to announce the Dedication and Grand Opening Ceremony for the new Dover Police facility. The event will take place on Friday, May 6, 2016 at 5 p.m. in front of the new facility at 46 Chestnut St.

    The completion of the new police department comes after decades of discussion and nearly two years of construction. Prior to the move to the new facility, which took place during the third week of March, the police department had occupied the basement level of Dover City Hall since the mid 1930’s.

  • Dover Police to hold 'Drug Take-Back Day' April 30

    posted on: 4/28/2016

    On Saturday, April 30, 2016, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Dover Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public another opportunity to prevent prescription drug and opioid abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. Medications can be brought to the Dover Police Department at 46 Chestnut St. for disposal. The service is free, anonymous, and no questions will be asked.

    “Dover, like communities across the state, is seeing an increase in heroin use and heroin related overdoes," said Chief Anthony Colarusso of the Dover Police Department. "We know that the majority of heroin users start with prescription drug abuse and then turn to heroin because it is cheaper and easier to get. If we can prevent prescription drug abuse we are in turn taking steps toward preventing heroin use. We urge all members of the public to safely dispose of the medications in their homes at the Drug Take Back.”
