Message from Police Chief
Berks County > Municipalities > Womelsdorf Borough


I just thought I would take this opportunity to introduce myself. To many of you I am Unknown stranger.  The first step in changing  that is for me to Tell you a little about myself.

My name is John K. Reber, I was born and raised in Reading  and Graduated from Reading High School.

After high school I served in the Navy from 1963 thru 1967, I served in the  Pacific and Viet Nam.

After the Navy, I was appointed to the Birdsboro Police Department and after one and a half years I went with The Cumru Twp co. Police where I remained for a short 32 years, during which time I held the ranks of Patrolman, Corporal, Detective, and Sergeant.
I also, While working full time, attended and graduated from Penn State  University, and completed some graduate work at West Chester University. I have six children two of which I adopted. In addition, I raised eight foster children and have nine grandchildren.
For the past 6 years I have been employed with the berks Co. sheriff's Office, and on February 5th of last year I have had the privilege of assuming the position As Chief of Police.
Since that time I have been working to steer the Womelsdorf Police  Department into becoming a more people friendly community oriented police department. I will continue to strive toward this goal along with crime prevention and law enforcement goals which have always been the goal of your police.
In closing, I wish to express that my door is always open to every citizen, and if you ever have a problem that I or the Police Department can assist you with, please do not hesitate to stop into the Borough office or call me at my  desk at 610.589.9657.
I look forward to serving you.
