Please be aware that individuals have contacted property owners within the Borough, informing them that their utility bill is past due with money being owed immediately or their utility will be shut off. This is not how regulated and legitimate utility companies operate. At no time would a legitimate utility company demand that a property owner must obtain and use special payment cards in order to prevent your utility to be shut off. Should you receive one of these phone calls, hang up immediately and confirm with your actual utility companies that they did not call. After doing so, place a phone call to the Police Department at 717-252-2500 informing them of the call received.
WHAT TO DO IN AN EMERGENCY
If you have an EMERGENCY, DO NOT HESITATE TO CALL 911. If you call the general office number in the event of an emergency, you may not get an immediate response due to our officers being out on patrol. Always call 911 in the event of a true emergency (burglary, traffic accident, assault, kidnapping, missing person, suspicious vehicles or people, etc).
The non-emergency number (840-2971) is for general complaints (barking dogs, kids skateboarding, parking violation, found objects, non-active neighbor disputes, animals on the loose, etc.)
If you have a general police related question/inquiry (about a police report, etc) please call the office (252-2500) and leave a message if you are not able to speak to an officer.

POLICE DEPARTMENT FAQ'S
Does the Borough Police Department have a ride along program?
We do not have a “ride along” program for the general public as it unfortunately poses liability risks.
Technically, no. The Borough does not have a specific separate Ordinance addressing noise levels but Chapter 2, Part 2, under Health and Safety provides guidelines regarding noise.
