Point Boro Police Department



When to call the Police:
The police should be called anytime and every time activities are considered suspicious. If a behavior that is witnessed is only a possible dangerous situation that could lead to a threat of the public safety, then this would also constitute a phone call to the police. Don't hesitate to call the police, if in doubt dial 911.

It's okay to be wrong:
The police department knows and understands that citizen's aren't always right about what they consider suspicious or wrongful activity. All we expect is that you take the initiative to look out for the safety of your neighbors and yourself. If an individual calls and the incident reported turns out to be a legitimate activity we will not hold you at fault. It is not only our responsibility, but we are proud of our reputation for responding to all calls for service.
