It is with both happiness and sadness that I must announce the retirement of Anne Novelli after 35 years of service to the Malvern Police Department and the people of our Borough.

Malvern is a special place and no one reflects the character of our community more than Anne. Born and raised in the Borough and then raising her own family here with her late husband, Joe, she has always put helping others and making our town better first. That is why so many know her as “Mrs. Malvern.”

A dedicated member of the Police Department, Anne has given selflessly whenever something is needed. From cancelling planned vacations to rushing into the office for an emergency, she is always there.

Most important is Anne’s commitment to the men and women of the Malvern PD. She is considered by many to be the “police mom” to all, her care and worry for the members of our force are endless.

Anne’s spirit, kind nature and commitment are irreplaceable and we will be sad to see her go. The department is happy for the future that lays before her, and wish her the very best in all she does in retirement.

The members of Malvern Police wish you well Anne, and want you to know you will always be welcome here.
