The 200 Block of East Main Street (between North Water Street and Poplar Alley) is currently closed to traffic due to a large tree which has blown over. The tree has impacted electrical wires and partially blocked one lane. Both lanes are closed until PPL can arrive to secure the power lines and until the tree can be safely removed from the roadway. Please avoid the area an plan alternate travel routes.
Big shoutout to EHC Associates for looking out for us so we can look out for you!
This year the Easter Bunny showed up early for us! This morning we received a call from EHC Associates on Horseshoe Rd. They offered to sanitize our vehicles FOR FREE! We took them up on their offer and within about 30 minutes Mr. John Hartman and his crew were here doing their thing. After cleaning our entire fleet, they were off to their next stop. Clearly not all heroes wear capes! Thank you Mr. Hartman and your entire crew at EHC Associates for helping us help our community!

There have been many changes in policing over the past decade. One of the largest impacts has been the use of social media in communication with the public by police agencies. During this period of the “Stay at Home” order, it is obvious the public has turned to the use of law enforcement web sites to stay informed on the most current situation in their community. The graphic depiction in this release provides evidence of the increased use of the NLCRPD.org platform.
Parks in Clay Township, Penn Township, Warwick Township, and East Petersburg Boroughs have restrictions concerning use of the facilities at the parks. There are postings regulating the utilization of playground equipment, sports courts, skate parks, and basketball courts. These prohibitions include areas of potential COVID 19 transmission and close contact conduct. Trails, rail trails, and other recreational park features are generally unaffected.
NLCRPD officers wear a distinctive daily uniform in the day to day operations of the department. The uniform has specific regular care recommendations to assure appearance standards and extension of the life of the uniform. Some of these include a dry-cleaning requirement. As a result of Governor Wolf’s recent mandate on business closures and restrictions; it is expected that all dry-cleaning and uniform tailoring services will be closed until further notice.
