National School Bus Safety Week, runs Oct. 16-20. Our department is dedicated to keeping our children safe. Please Share. Thank you. Pennsylvania's School Bus Stopping Law requires motorists to stop at least 10 feet away from school buses that have their red lights flashing and stop arm extended. Motorists must stop when they are behind the bus, meeting the bus or approaching an intersection where a bus is stopped. Motorists following or traveling alongside a school bus must also stop until the red lights have stopped flashing, the stop arm is withdrawn, and all children have reached safety. If physical barriers such as grassy medians, guide rails or concrete median barriers separate oncoming traffic from the bus, motorists in the opposing lanes may proceed without stopping. #AllentownPolice Photo Cred: #ThankYou

A nice moment last night during our town hall for the body camera program.... #AllentownPolice

APD and the Lehigh County District Attorney's Office announced an arrest in connection with a recent homicide #AllentownPolice

APD TO UNVEIL BODY CAMERAS AT PUBLIC MEETING Allentown police will unveil new body cameras at a public meeting in City Council Chambers on Tuesday, October 17 from 6pm to 7pm. The body cameras were purchased from VIEVU of Seattle, Washington with the help of a $500,000 matching grant from the U.S Department of Justice. The city was awarded the competitive grant during the first round of funding in September 2015. The meeting will include a PowerPoint presentation, actual body camera video, a live demonstration and remarks by Mayor Ed Pawlowski and Police Chief Glen Dorney. Members of the public will have an opportunity to ask questions. The department purchased 200 body cameras. One-hundred-fifty cameras will be assigned to the patrol division. It is anticipated that the body cameras will be fully operational on November 1, 2017. Body camera policy is the result of input from Allentown police, the Lehigh County District Attorney’s Office and the federal Bureau of Justice Assistance. The mandatory storage of the video and the public’s access to it are governed by recently enacted state law. Among other things, the measure allows police to record audio and video inside private homes — previous laws only allowed video — and it removes previous state wiretapping regulations that required officers to make an announcement when recording in public places. #AllentownPolice #APD

School Resource Officer Moll and Boyle had the pleasure of visiting Jackson Elementary this morning. A special thank you to Jackson and ASD for inviting our SRO's out. #AllentownPolice #APD #ASD

Chief Dorney and all of APD want to congratulate all of the Allentown Fire Department award recipients at their ceremony today. Congratulations, keep up the great work! #AllentownPolice #AllentownFD
