Keeping South Lebanon Township Beautiful! South Lebanon Township has several ordinances in place to keep your neighborhood beautiful. Recently it has been called to our attention that there is some confusion over the ordinance regulating signage. SLT Ordinance Number 278, Section 16, does not permit any type of sign to be placed in any roadway right-of-way. This includes yard sale signs & all civic event related signs to include youth sports team advertising, church events, election signs, etc. Any sign placed within the right-of-way will be removed. If you would like to display these types of signs, a general rule of thumb would be to place your sign 10 feet back from the curb or edge of the road, this includes the area in the front of your home. This will put the sign out of the right-of-way. Before placing any sign, make sure that you are the property owner. All commercial and business signs fall under a different subsection of the ordinance and are regulated through Lebanon County Planning Department. If you require more information for Commercial signs please inquire with the police department. Thank you for promoting a positive visual environment in South Lebanon Township!

Fraud Warning - A South Lebanon Township resident recently contacted the South Lebanon Township Police Department to report "ransomware" on their computer. When our Officer arrived at the resident's home, the resident was actively engaged in conversation with a "tech support" agent who had taken control of their computer and who also at one point, activated the webcam on the computer. Our Officer was advised that the agent had deposited a "credit" of $2200 into the resident's PayPal account, then wanted the resident to pay $1900 back in a wire transfer for the over-payment relating to a refund for a prior tech support purchase. Our Officer took control of the phone at which time the subject stated his name was "Jerry" in a heavy Middle Eastern accent. Within moments of our Officer speaking to "Jerry" the screen changed to resident's home screen and "Jerry" stated they had gotten out of the computer. The resident stated the "tech support" person was verbally demanding, at one point cursing & insistent money be paid or an iTunes card be purchased. The resident was advised to disconnect any internet access and have the computer checked professionally for any viruses, malware, etc. Although the resident was not scammed for any money, they were advised to contact the Credit Bureaus as the computer contained personal information. The telephone number provided for "Jerry" the "tech support" operator was 1-855-420-8288. An internet search shows numerous complaints of fraudulent tech support activity utilizing this number. For more information on this type of scam please go to the Federal Trade Commission website: https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/0346-tech-support-scams

Trick or Treat is on MONDAY OCTOBER 31st from 6 - 8 pm. (Rain date is Tuesday November 1st) South Lebanon Township Police Department reminds you to put safety first on Trick or Treat! Residents • Welcome trick-or-treaters with your porch lights and any exterior lights on. • Make sure your sidewalks and driveways are clear of obstacles that might be tripped over. • Do not give homemade or unwrapped treats to children. Motorists • Exercise extreme caution when driving a vehicle. Be on the alert for excited youngsters, whose vision may be obscured by masks, darting out into traffic. • Slowdown in residential neighborhoods and obey all traffic signs and signals. Drive at least 5 mph below the posted speed limit to give yourself extra time to react to children who may dart into the street. • Watch for children walking on roadways, medians and curbs. In dark costumes, they’ll be harder to see at night. • Look for children crossing the street. They may not be paying attention to traffic and cross the street mid-block or between parked cars. • Carefully enter and exit driveways and alleys. • Broaden your scanning by looking for children left and right into yards and front porches. Safety First • Make sure costumes are flame retardant. • Keep costumes short to prevent trips and falls. • Try make-up instead of a mask. Masks can be hot and uncomfortable, and they can obstruct a child’s vision, a dangerous thing when kids are crossing streets and going up and down steps. • Be Bright at Night! Make sure kids wear light colors or put reflective tape on their costumes. Glow sticks are also a fun way to light the way. • There is safety in numbers. A responsible adult should always accompany young children and make sure older kids trick-or-treat with friends. • If older children are going out without you, create a map of a safe trick-or-treating route and set a time limit for your child to be out with check in times. It is always best to keep the activity to your own neighborhood. • Children should remember to look both ways before crossing the street and to cross at corners only. Use sidewalks, not the street, for walking. Be sure to “Stop, Look and Listen.” Never run between parked vehicles. • Plan and discuss the route your trick-or-treaters will follow. • Instruct children to travel only in familiar areas and along established routes. • Establish a time for children to return home. • Review trick-or-treating safety precautions, including pedestrian and traffic safety rules. Trick-or-Treaters • Stop only at well-lit houses. Do not go inside anyone’s home or garage. • Do not accept rides from strangers. • Stay on sidewalks and avoid walking in streets if possible. If there are no sidewalks, walk on the left side of the road, facing traffic. • Look both ways and listen for traffic before crossing the street. • Cross streets only at the corner, and never cross between parked vehicles or mid-block. • Do not take shortcuts through back yards, alleys or parks. • Trick-or-treat in a group if someone older cannot go with you. • Tell your parents where you are going. • Do not eat any treats until after an adult has inspected it. Treats • An adult should inspect all candy in a well-lit place and discard any homemade or unwrapped treats. Eat only unopened candies and other treats that are in original wrappers.
