Well, the Lower Allen Township Department of Public Safety is announcing the very first “Public Safety Citizen’s Academy” to inform, and orient Township residents to those services.

LA Alerts – Subscribe to Notifications

In April of 2017, we retired the system used to make community notifications for emergencies, as well as general notifications of Township activities. The retired system was largely based upon landline phone numbers contained in the “White Pages” database. As landlines continue to decrease and become less reliable for immediate notifications, it became essential to shift to a mobility based system that provided for a resident’s self-determination of a variety of contact options.

With the new system, referred to as “LA ALERTS”, you are able create and account and add the phone numbers (landline and cell phones), email addresses, and text numbers where you wish to be contacted for various notifications. You are also able to select groups you wish to be included in for emergency and/or routine messaging.

Subscribing is easy!

Security Camera Registry

Cameras Help Solve Crime…

We all know this.  The world we live in is inundated with security cameras at both business and residential locations.   You may even have cameras at your residence or place of business!  That’s why we’re asking for your help with our

Voluntary Camera Registration Database 

We are asking residents and businesses to partner with us in the detection, prevention, and solving of crimes.  Often, a crime will occur that may have been caught on camera.  We may never know that, though, because we do not know where cameras are throughout the township.   What we are asking is that residents and business owners go to the form {CLICK HERE for the form} and provide the requested information.

We’re hoping this partnership helps us solve more crime and assists in keeping our community just a little safer.  Thank you in advance to all who choose to participate!
