Identity Theft Presentations – One of the fastest growing crimes in
One of the most common complaints we receive are traffic related. We feel that the most effective way to solve theses complaints is by presence and enforcement. Two ways the public can assist us is one, to notify us when there is a specific problem. Provide us with information on where the problem is occurring, when and by whom (vehicle description).
Secondly, if you reside in a residential neighborhood and are willing to permit Scott Officers to monitor traffic from your driveway, we want to know. Upon advising us, we will request that you complete a permission form and your driveway will be put on a list of locations that our Officers can park at to monitor traffic.
Although our Officers patrol the Township very thoroughly, we can not do it by ourselves. We need your help in keeping your eyes open for any suspicious activities in your neighborhood. When you see something that doesn’t seem right, call the police, we can investigate. Although we prefer that you give your name and number to the Police Dispatch in case we need to obtain more information from you, you can remain anonymous if you prefer. Call 9-1-1 or non emergency 412 279.6911.
The Township does have an ordinance on abandon vehicles. The Police Department only investigates abandon vehicles on public streets. Abandon vehicles are vehicles that are parked on the street with either an expired inspection sticker or registration plate. Vehicles that are parked on private property are investigated by the Township Ordinance Officer, Bob Fischer. He can be contacted @ 412.276.5300 ext 252.
On Street Parking
Some areas of the Township have restricted parking from 2am until 6am. These streets are posted with signs at least on each end of the street. In these areas vehicles need to be completely off the road to be in compliance. Should a temporary situation arise that a vehicle may need parked on the street (driveway repair, guests etc.) you can call the non emergency dispatch or the Police Department Administrative number between 8am and 4pm Monday thru Friday.
