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.

Ruthland Avenue – Force Main Replacement

Delaware Valley Utility Contractors (DVUC) will be working on Ruthland Avenue starting on or before September 3rd.RoadWork

The project consists of approximately 2,400 linear feet of 4” pipe to replace an existing sewer forcemain. The new pipe will be installed by Horizontal Directional Drilling which creates the least amount of disruption to the surrounding area. There are also several precast concrete structures that will be installed with this project. DVUC crews have been out there already, diligently locating existing underground utilities using Vacuum Excavation technology which uses high pressure air to break up the soils and a large vacuum to extract the soils. This keeps the utility from being damaged.

Malvern Police Dep- Charitable Endeavors

The Malvern Borough Police Department along with surrounding Police Departments are once again growing beards for a good cause this October, November and December. All participating Officers along with our Police Associating will be donating funds towards two charitable endeavors, Unite for Her and Beards for Buc.

Unite for Her is a locally based charity committed to helping women diagnosed with breast cancer navigate their way through treatment by providing complementary therapies designed to promote physical and emotional wellness.

Beards for Buc is in honor of Sergeant Christopher Sambuco of the Caln Township Police Department who suddenly and unexpectedly passed away in April 2018 leavings behind an extended law enforcement family as a well as a wife and four young children. Chris was a devoted husband, Father, friend and public servant. Funds raised will benefit the Sambuco Children Education Fund.

October is internationally recognized as Breast Cancer Awareness month. The pink ribbon is an international symbol of breast cancer awareness, wearing the ribbon or the color pink in general, express moral support for women with breast cancer. For this reason Malvern Borough Police officers have modified our uniforms for the month of October . . . we have gone pink!

2019 Police Oct Event

If you would like to help, we will be accepting donations for both Unite For Her and the Sambuco Children Educational Fund at our police station throughout October, November and December. Checks can be made payable to Malvern Police Joint Negotiating Committee.
