Frequently asked questions:

How do I respond to a traffic or non-traffic citation?

When you receive either a traffic or non-traffic citation you have 10 days to respond.  Failure to respond may result in an arrest warrant being issued.  In addition, PennDOT may suspend your driver’s license.  The District Judge for Chalfont Borough is located at District Court, 962 Town Center, New Britain, PA 18901 (Magisterial District No. 07-2-08).  A response to the citation can either be submitted in-person at the courthouse, or by mail.

How do I respond to a parking ticket?

Parking tickets are issued under the authority of either Borough Ordinances, or the PA Motor Vehicle Code for parking restrictions.  If you fail to respond to a parking ticket, the issuing Officer may withdraw the ticket and file a traffic citation, which may cost you significantly more than the initial ticket.  Parking ticket payments may be mailed or dropped off in-person at the Chalfont Borough Administration Building, 40 N. Main Street.

How do I obtain a copy of an accident report?

Details can be found on CBRPD’s Accident Report page.

How does a local business register emergency contact information?

In the event of an emergency, the Police Department needs to have emergency contact information on file.  Please call CBRPD at:  215-345-4143, or go to the police station at 57 West Court Street, Doylestown, to complete a form.

What is a Vacation Home Check?

If you are planning to be out of town for an extended period of time, you may notify the Police Department of your plans for them to check on your house periodically.  You can do that online through CBRPD’s website by clicking here.  Or you can call the CBRPD at 215-345-4143, and leave the following information:
