National Night Out – Tuesday, August 7, 2018

National Night Out Event Announcement Logo top

Lower Allen Township Police Department is beginning to plan for the annual National Night Out campaign. In the past, we took all of our manpower out, visiting with residents in their own neighborhoods. However, over the years, participation at the neighborhood level continued to decline. In 2016, we decided to host a centralized event at our Municipal Services Center. With the potential of this event continuing to grow, we chose to reach out to a larger venue. Christian Life Assembly has agreed to be our host venue for this growing event.

The purpose of National Night Out is to promote police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. We will provide a special “meet your neighbors” area, where event attendees can stop by to pick-up a “neighborhood” tag to wear during the event. We hope that this will give attendees an opportunity to form new relationships with neighbors they do not know and visit with those they may not see on a regular basis.

Local Businesses and Organizations are encouraged to partner with us during this very important event. Lower Allen Township residents are encouraged to attend.

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!
