A letter from Chief Coluzzi
Lower Makefield Police – Citizen’s Take Aim At Crime - CTAAC
In keeping with our commitment to serve and protect our community, the Lower Makefield Police are asking the cooperation of our residents and business owners who currently have video surveillance cameras and their homes and businesses.
Our Police – Community partnership initiative allows residents and business owners to notify the Lower Makefield Township Police Department that they have an exterior or outdoor video camera as part of their home or business surveillance system.
When crimes occur in your neighborhoods and business locations, you can help solve them or aid in the criminal investigation by registering your camera surveillance system with the police. Once your camera is registered with the police, you will be notified when the police believe a crime, or a suspect, may have been captured by your camera system. Police will then contact you to view your video.
Video surveillance has proven to be an excellent method of identifying, apprehending, and prosecuting suspects who are caught in the act of committing a crime.
Registering your video surveillance system is a great example of community-police partnerships and is something we highly value as a police agency serving your community.
To register your camera, please go to www.lmtpolice.org for instructions.
Your participation in the Police-Community Partnership is free. Your information will not be shared, and will remain confidential. Footage containing criminal activity may be used as evidence during any stage of a criminal proceeding.

Properly disposing of excess drugs is everyone’s responsibility as a matter of public safety. More than 70 percent of young people abusing prescription pain relievers get them through friends or family, a statistic that includes raiding the family medicine cabinet.
