TREDYFFRIN – Township officials have suspended Police Chief Andrew Chambers for four days without pay after his 16-year-old son crashed a township police vehicle during a training operation, causing a minor injury to the instructor in the vehicle.
Township Solicitor Vince Donohue issued a statement Wednesday on behalf of the Board of Supervisors in response to the Daily Local News’ request for information on the incident, which the newspaper learned about through two anonymous letters.
In the statement, Donohue confirmed that Chambers allowed his son, who has a learner’s permit, to drive a police car during Emergency Vehicle Operator Course (EVOC) training Nov. 23 in Bridgeport. Several Tredyffrin officers attended the training, which was held on a portion of a highway closed to public traffic, Donohue said.
