Township Announces the Launch of a GIS Fireworks Reporting Application


In effort to assist the police department in identifying problem areas in the Township, an application has been created to easily report the use of illegal fireworks within the Township.

Lower Paxton Township and the Lower Paxton Police Department are pleased to announce the development of a GIS Fireworks Reporting Application.  Residents now have the ability to easily report locations where fireworks are being set off in their neighborhoods. 

The illegal use of fireworks in our community has been concerning to residents and this reporting application will allow Township officials to see where issues are occurring.  The Township is grateful to the City of Harrisburg for sharing this GIS concept.
