Guide: Responding to COVID-19 in Pennsylvania

With the entire Commonwealth being on the “Stay at Home Order”, we have been receiving many questions about from residents. We are learning our way through this process and will try to help keep you informed with what we know and with what information we have.
YES - Grocery stores, pharmacies, gas stations etc… will remain open. There is NO REASON to rush out and panic buy products, as the stores will remain open. These businesses and employees have been diligently keeping shelves stocked to the best of their abilities, and will continue to do so, if they can keep receiving regular deliveries. Panic buying causes these supplies to be quickly depleted, so we ask that you consider others and only purchase what you need in reasonable quantities.
NO - There is not a curfew
NO - Officers won’t pull you over to question you about whether you are going to the store, work or taking care of other essential business.
YES – You can go for a walk, run, hike or take part in other outside activities, but we ask if you are around others, please maintain social distancing.
YES – Restaurants are still providing takeout or delivery food services. They have been wonderful in doing so and we encourage you to support them through these difficult times. We also encourage you to continue to support local businesses when they re-open.
This is a learning experience for all of us and we, like most of you are trying to balance work life along with keeping our families moving along, trying to explain to children things we don’t have answers for ourselves.
We will continue to try and keep you updated on any changes or clarifications to the above listed items, if and when they become available. Please refer to the State’s Stay at Home Order guidelines at www.pa.gov/guides/responding-to-covid-19.
We are encouraging you to stay home and only go out when necessary and remember Social Distancing.

Thank You for all you do in making our community a safer place to live and work.

All Pennsylvanians have an important role to play in stopping the spread of COVID-19 and saving lives. Here are resources to help you do your part.

In response to the COVID-19 situation, Mifflin County Regional Police Department is taking the following steps to protect our officers and the Communities that we serve from possible contamination, effective immediately:
Above all else, if you have an Emergency, Dial 911
1- All complaints received by the Department that can be handled by phone, are to be handled in that manner.
2- Any requests to have an officer come in person, the complainant will have to meet with the officer outside the residence (weather permitting) or at a nearby open sheltered area if weather conditions do not permit. Maintain approximately six feet from all other parties and refrain from unnecessary physical contact, like shaking hands.
3- No public admittance to MCRPD, unless summoned by an officer.
4- If you feel you need to come to MCRPD, first contact the Non-Emergency Dispatch number at 717-248-9607.
All of these procedures are in accordance with other area first responders and necessary to ensure that officers remain healthy to continue to serve our Communities. We appreciate your cooperation with these measures. Should you have any questions or concerns, MCRPD can be reached at 717-248-1900. Thank you!!

March 2, 2020

The Mifflin County Regional Police Department will join the Pennsylvania State Police and over 200 municipal agencies to conduct the second targeted aggressive driving enforcement wave from March 16 to April 26, 2020.

As part of the Pennsylvania Aggressive Driving Enforcement and Education Project, the second wave will aim to reduce the number of aggressive driving related crashes, injuries and deaths on roadways throughout the state. Any aggressive driver stopped by police will receive a citation.

The enforcement wave will focus on distracted driving, speeding and work zone awareness. Motorists exhibiting other unsafe behaviors such as red light or stop sign violations, following too closely, or other aggressive actions will also receive a citation.

Municipal police agencies that participated in last year’s campaign made 39,141 aggressive-driving related contacts. Participating agencies issued 22,353 citations for speeding. Participating police agencies also issued 3,077 citations for stop sign and red light violations.

Additionally, the enforcement accounted for 34 felony arrests, 98 fugitives apprehended, 126 impaired driving arrests and 1,259 occupant protection citations.

The Pennsylvania Aggressive Driving Enforcement and Education Project is funded by part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) investment of federal funds from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Drinking the Green Beer? Call a Designated Driver!
Remember: Buzzed Driving Is Drunk Driving

Green beer, leprechauns, and elusive pots of gold are all hallmarks of St. Patrick’s Day, the long-awaited Irish holiday. Make sure you and your friends stay safe this St. Paddy’s Day by remembering one important piece of advice: Buzzed Driving Is Drunk Driving. This means that if you plan to drink any alcoholic beverage, it’s essential that you plan for a designated driver. In 2018 alone, 73 people were killed in drunk-driving crashes over the St. Paddy’s Day holiday period. For this reason, the Mifflin County DUI Taskforce is teaming up with the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to spread the message about the dangers of drunk driving, because even one drink can be one too many.

We want our community to enjoy St. Patrick’s Day, and we expect drivers to take responsibility for their actions. If you’ve been drinking, make the right choice to find a sober driver to get you, and your friends, home safely. Before you put your keys in the ignition, remind yourself: Buzzed Driving Is Drunk Driving. If you feel a buzz, you are in no shape to drive.

Don’t be the reason someone, including yourself, doesn’t get home. Don’t let St. Patrick’s Day become an anniversary of a tragic night.

This St. Patrick’s Day, The Mifflin County DUI Task Force and the NHTSA urge drivers to designate a sober driver before heading out for the evening. If you plan on drinking, plan on NOT driving.

The Mifflin County DUI Task Force will be conducting enforcement activities to further the community’s goal of highway safety. Coordinated enforcement efforts will take place from March 6 through March 17, 2020. Intoxicated operators will be arrested.

The Mifflin County DUI Task Force is made up of Officers from the Armagh Township Police Department, Granville Township Police Department, Lewistown Borough Police Department and the Mifflin County Regional Police Department.

NEWS RELEASE

The Mifflin County Regional Police Department is currently participating in a national “Click It or Ticket” Seat Belt Enforcement initiative from May 13 through June 2, 2019.

The goal is to reduce unbelted injuries and deaths on Pennsylvania highways through coordinated enforcement using traffic enforcement zones and roving patrols. Traffic enforcement zones combine stationary enforcement and checkpoint tactics on roadways with high numbers of unbuckled crashes. Citations will be issued to motorists who are caught unbuckled or transporting unrestrained children.

According to PennDOT data there were 14,309 unrestrained crashes that resulted in 378 fatalities in 2017.

Motorists are reminded that Pennsylvania’s primary seat-belt law requires drivers and passengers under 18 years old to buckle up, and children under the age of 4 must be properly restrained in an approved child safety seat.

Children ages 4 to 8 must be restrained in an appropriate booster seat. A law that went into effect August 2016 requires a child under 2 years of age be securely fastened in a rear-facing child passenger restraint system, which is to be used until the child outgrows the maximum weight and limits designated by the manufacturer. In addition, children ages 8 to 18 must be wearing a seat belt when riding anywhere in the vehicle.

Also, drivers and front-seat passengers 18 years-old or older are required to buckle up. If motorists are stopped for a traffic violation and are not wearing their seat belt, they can receive a second ticket and second fine.

The effort, which includes 350 Pennsylvania municipal agencies, supplements the national “Click It or Ticket” Mobilization which runs through June 2, 2019. As part of the initiative, PennDOT distributes federal enforcement funding from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

For more information on seat belt safety, visit penndot.gov/safety.

PennDOT's multi-faceted approach to improving highway safety in Pennsylvania involves promoting behavioral programs and implementing infrastructure improvements. Behavioral programs include impaired and distracted-driving campaigns, aggressive-driving enforcement, seat-belt and child-restraint progr...

The Mifflin County Regional Police Department has seen an increase in the number of motorists failing to stop for the flashing red lights of a school bus. Violations are occurring while the buses are completely stopped and students are preparing to enter or exit the school bus. School buses on SR 655 through Brown and Union Township are experiencing a high percentage of violations at this time. This includes East and West Main Street through Belleville.

Motorists who fail to stop for the flashing red lights on a school bus are committing a crime. See the Pennsylvania Motor Vehicle Code section 3345. More importantly, these motorists are putting children at risk of serious bodily injury or death. Our motoring public must do their part to keep our children safe.

The Mifflin County Regional Police Department, in cooperation with the Mifflin County School District, is dedicated to the safety of our students. As such, efforts are under way to combat this problem. However, we need the public to actively engage in said efforts. Motorists should exercise due care around school buses and in school zones. Eliminate distractions inside the vehicle and pay attention. Motorists observing a violation are encouraged to be a good witness. Obtain the license plate number of the violator and a general description of the vehicle and or operator. Violations should be reported to the Mifflin County Communication Center at 717-248-9607. Communications will forward the report to the appropriate police agency.

Thank you for your assistance in this matter.

MCRPD is investigating two hit and run motor vehicle accidents.

The first accident occurred in the parking lot of the Moose Family Center in Derry Township. On 02/03/19, between 10:00 pm and 10:30 pm, an unknown vehicle stuck a parked Subaru Outback in the parking lot of the facility. This striking vehicle immediately fled the scene.

The second accident occurred on US HWY 522 North near Kish Veterinary Service in Derry Township. On 02/04/19 at approximately 11:15 am, a dark colored pick-up truck towing a red colored trailer passed a Balfurd delivery van on the right at said location. The delivery van sustained side-swipe related damage about it's passenger side. The operator of the delivery van noted that the trailer contained at least one swine. The operator of the truck and trailer fled the scene.

This was in a post today. Thought you guys should see it. Keep an eye out for kids waiting on buses in burnham/yeagertown area can't say I'm right but might be so if you see any suspicious activity involving a lady in a maroon van might want to call it in. Someone that seemed very interested in a child who appeared to be alone until they looked up to see that I was in fact there and watching and they looked surprised and drove off! Maybe they were just curious but the way they completely turned in their seat to look and then looked around as if looking for an adult and seemed very interested till they saw me was kinda suspicious so I wanted to warn others!!! Better safe than sorry
I witnessed an accident Saturday 6 Oct about 200 yds in front of Aldi's just off New Freedom rd Burnham. Am trying to contact the man driving one of the vehicles. If you can be of help please contact : [email protected] Thanks
