Valley Forge National Historical Park Law Enforcement personnel are on patrol to protect you while you are in the park. These park rangers have full police authority and may issue citations and arrest violators. Valley Forge recently combined our police dispatch operations with the Montgomery County Emergency Operations and Dispatch Center. This change, along with a project to assign addresses to each structure in the park, has increased the ability of law enforcement to locate you quicker during an emergency.
For an emergency dial 9-1-1
