The Lewistown Police Department would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. We would like to take this day to reflect upon all the things we have to be thankful for. We ask that you help us make this holiday season a safe one. Take your time if you are out travelling and refrain from getting behind the wheel if you choose to consume any intoxicating substances or beverages. Our officers have been and will continue to be out looking for those who choose to ignore this advice.

To those who will be out shopping and/or hitting the woods for deer season in the upcoming days, be safe and best of luck!

The Lewistown Police Department will be participating in the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation's Operation Safe Stop. Operation Safe Stop is a proactive approach to educate the motoring public that passing a stopped school bus, when children are loading or unloading, is both dangerous and illegal. Law enforcement agencies, school transportation providers, pupil transportation associations, and PennDOT have combined their efforts to raise public awareness about the potential consequences of these traffic violations and reduce the occurrence of illegal school bus passes.

The Lewistown Police Department will be conducting enforcement using marked and unmarked police vehicles. Anyone found guilty of violating Title 75, Section 3345(a) (Meeting or overtaking school bus- Duty of approaching driver when red signals are flashing) will be subject to a $250 fine plus costs, five points on their license, and a 60 day license suspension. The Lewistown Police Department takes the safety of our children serious and there will be zero tolerance for any violations observed.

Congratulations to Officer Brian Becker on completing his training today to become a part of the Crisis Intervention Team! With Ofc. Becker's graduation, all sworn personnel at the Lewistown Police Department are now trained CIT members.

CIT training includes law enforcement officers, sheriff's deputies, correction officers, probation/parole officers, 911 telecommunicators, mental health professionals, emergency medical services staff, and other related first responders. The 40-hour comprehensive training emphasizes mental health-related topics, crisis resolution skills and de-escalation training, and access to community-based services. All officers and emergency personnel register for the training on a voluntary basis. The format of the training consists of lectures, on-site visitation and exposure to several mental health facilities, intensive interactions with individuals with a mental illness, and scenario-based de-escalation skill training.

Goals of CIT:

-To improve interactions between law enforcement and persons with mental illness
-To prevent the inappropriate restraint, incarceration, and stigmatization of persons with mental illness
-To reduce injury to officers, family members, and individuals in crisis, and
-To link individuals with mental illness to appropriate treatment and resources in the community.

The Lewistown Police Department would like to wish all of the students in the Mifflin County School District a great first day back to school on Wednesday, August 30, 2023.

The return to the school year means an influx of traffic, pedestrians, and school buses. The police department would like to take a moment to remind the public to be alert for children waiting at bus stops, crossing the street to get to buses, and walking to schools. Please plan for extra time during your travels due to the increased volume of traffic and buses stopping to pick up students. It is illegal to pass a school bus when the red lights are flashing and the stop arm is extended. Students and parents are reminded to follow all directions from the school district regarding student drop-off, parking, and pick-up.

The Lewistown Police will be patrolling the areas of the schools within the Lewistown Borough to help the students arrive and depart safely.

A few days ago, the Lewistown Police Department made a post about a visit we received from a local resident named William. We were amazed at how kind everyone was in showing support for William. We spoke with his mother and she couldn't believe how many likes and comments everyone made on the post.

The Lewistown Police Department was asked to lead the 131st Central District Volunteer Firemen's Association Convention "Grand Convention Parade" held on Saturday, August 12, 2023. William proved to be such a popular person in our community that we thought he should lead the parade! Thanks for the help W***y.
