Mayor's Welcome

On behalf of the Westville Council thank you for visiting our Town and community online.

Westville residents are proud of their history and the future they are building together. From reclaimed parkland, to newly developed residential areas and civic buildings, Westville is moving forward, and we have much to be proud of. Take time to explore this web site, visit our many businesses, learn about our coal mining past, and discover our libraries and schools. These are just a few of many opportunities that Westville has to offer.

Most of all we welcome your suggestions. Please visit or call. Like the commmunity itself, this website is yours!

Roger MacKay, Mayor.

“ Service & Protection through teamwork and community partnership”


The Westville Police Service is committed to improving the quality of life for its citizens by maintaining a safe community for all. To do this we have established a strong partnership with our community by working through the Westville Citizens Crime Prevention Association. Our strong teamwork has allowed the community to flourish during the worst of times. We work closely with other agencies to enhance service delivery.

We are committed to insuring the youth within our community receive the guidance needed to make mature decisions and develop into responsible citizens. We have several programs designed for different ages and work closely with our schools. Our youth benefit from our D.A.R.E. Program, Bicycle Safety Program, High School Grad Program, Crosswalk Safety Program and Halloween Safety Program to name a few. The 1st. Westville Police Venture / Rover Program is designed to allow youth to become an integral part of our community partnership and work along side our officers in providing community projects.

We work closely with our seniors to insure their safety and provide free of  charge the Senior’s Watch program that checks daily on seniors and disabled persons living alone.

We provide guidance and education to our businesses to prevent crime trends that target them.

Despite all efforts crime still exists in every community. Our officers and civilian staff have the training, experience and necessary skills to meet the needs of our community and combat this.

Donald E. Hussher, M.O.M., C.D.
Chief of Police
