The Lower Paxton Township Police Department’s Community Policing unit is charged with the responsibility of establishing positive communication and partnerships between the Lower Paxton community and the police department.  While all the police officers are obligated to engage in community policing, the unit must assist and create avenues in which to accomplish this task. The Community Policing officer also serves as a part-time school resource officer for the three Township middle schools.

The Lower Paxton Township Police Department maintains a very active Community Policing unit, responsible for a vast array of community services.  Those services include:

  • Citizens’ police Academy
  • Quarterly Community Meetings
    • The Community Policing Unit, in conjunction with the Criminal Investigation Unit, conducts quarterly informational meetings on various topics.  The meetings are hosted by various churches throughout the Township and are open to everyone The next meeting will be held at 6:30 P.M. on February 19, 2013 at St. Marks Lutheran Church, 4200 Londonderry Road.  The meeting topic is “Identity Theft, Fraud and Scams: How to protect yourself”.
  • Neighborhood Watch
    • A Community Policing Officer can assist your neighborhood in setting up an organized watch group.  Call the Department for more information.
  • Certified Child Safety Seat Installations
    • Schedule an appointment to have a certified technician check your child safety seat for proper installation or assist you in installing the seat.  When coming to have your seat checked you must bring with you the owner’s manuals for both the seat and the vehicle it is being installed in.  We request that you read the seat owner’s manual in advance and have the seat installed upon arrival.  We will discuss your installation and work together to make any necessary corrections.
  • School Lunch Program
    • Officers visit students at the local schools during their lunch periods.  This makes all officers accessible to students for questions in a relaxed, non-threatening environment.
  • Crime Prevention Presentations
    • We will come to your business, church, local homeowner association meeting, or neighborhood group meeting and give a presentation a topic of interest to your group.  Some examples of presentations are: Home and Vehicle Burglary, Keeping your Child Safe, Internet Safety, and different types of scams.
  • Police Department Tours
    • Tours of the police department are scheduled for local community groups (Girls Scouts, Boy Scouts, day cares, etc…) through the Community Policing unit.  These tours will be held one evening a month and can be scheduled in advance through the Community Policing office.
