Tredyffrin Police Chief Andrew Chambers' son got into an accident while driving a township police car on a closed training course on November 23. According to a report on Philly.com Chambers didn't report the incident to the Chairman of the Tredyffrin Board of Supervisors until December 5. The report quotes Township Solicitor Vince Donohue as saying that delay factored into the supervisors' decision to sanction the chief with a four day suspension.
The board suspended Chambers after meeting in a closed executive session on Tuesday (December 13).
The Philly.com story also reports that about 15 people were interviewed during the course of the township's investigation, "including 11 or 12 police officers who participated in the training exercise in which the accident occured."
The report may raise questions from the public about the incident, the investigation, and the delay in reporting it. The public's next chance to address the board will be during the regularly scheduled Board of Supervisors meeting at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, December 19 in the
