PA State Police Alert

PSP

As warmer weather approaches, there is typically an uptick of vehicle break-ins. Remember to keep valuables out of sight, and your car doors locked. While we give every effort to track down those responsible, not all crimes can be solved.

As the income tax deadline nears, scammers will call and pretend to be from the IRS. The scammer will notify you of a warrant, or something which requires action on your behalf to stay out of trouble, and demand payment in the form of gift cards or electronic transfers. No legitimate agency will ask for payment over the phone, payment via gift cards, nor payment through services like Western Union. Be smart and don’t make yourself an easy victim. If it sounds suspicious or you have a reason to doubt it, go with your instinct.

Pennsylvania Yellow Dot Program

Yellow Dot

Yellow Dot LogoThis program assists citizens in the “golden hour” of emergency care following a traffic crash when they may not be able to communicate their needs themselves. Placing a Yellow Dot decal in your vehicle’s rear window alerts first responders to check your glove compartment for vital information to ensure you receive the medical attention you need.

The program is a cooperative effort between PennDOT, the state departments of Health and Aging, the Pennsylvania State Police, the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission, first responders, and local law enforcement.

 How Can Citizens Participate?

Citizens can either stop by the North Newton Township office at 528 Oakville Road, Shippensburg to pick up a Yellow Dot kit, or complete a participation form online to have PennDOT mail them a Yellow Dot kit. Upon receipt, participants should complete the information section, which includes emergency contact information, medical history, medications, allergies, and doctors. A photo (showing only the head and shoulders) is then taped to the appropriate location inside the booklet. The kit should then be placed in the vehicle’s glove compartment. The Yellow Dot decal is placed in the lower left corner of the participant’s rear windshield, no higher than 3 inches from the bottom.

For large quantities, please contact the PennDOT Sales Store at:
ra-penndotsalesstore@pa.gov or 717-787-6746. Due to the large volume of kit requests, please allow a few weeks for delivery. All requests are given priority based on availability of supplies.

Residents may dispose of trash FREE
