Open invite to join us in reaching our goal for a charitable cause, we hope to see a lot of beards around Hellertown this November!

We had a great time at St. Theresa's school on 9/28/2017. The students were all very polite and well behaved. Thank you for the hospitality and appreciation, looking forward to future visits.

*Scam Alert* Hellertown received a report of two suspicious individuals claiming to be BB&T Bank employees going door to door asking residents for their bank account information. BB&T has confirmed that the individuals are NOT employees of the bank. Furthermore this is not a practice for ANY banking institution and account information should always be kept well guarded.

*TRAFFIC ADVISORY* 1500 Block of Rt. 412 in Hellertown will have traffic delays due to a motor vehicle collision resulting in a downed utility pole. Verizon and PPL have stated that repairs may take up to 12 hours to complete. We strongly recommend you avoid this area as increased traffic congestion is expected. If you live in the nearby area and do not have power, restoration efforts by PPL are currently underway.

A warm thank you to the Home Sewing Center Crafting Angels for the special keychains they crafted for the Officers of the Hellertown Police Department!

HPD was surprised to have been visited by Lehigh Valley Rocks. We have hidden one of our rocks in another location in the borough. Visit www.facebook.com/lehighvalleyrocks to see our photo tag of the new location! If you can find it, hide it somewhere new and add your photo clue.

IRS and Federal Government Agencies will never call you and threaten you with any kind of Warrant in order to obtain alleged monies owed. This is a popular scam currently trending, please be suspicious and consult with your local law enforcement agency in the event you receive a suspicious call.

A program known as Project Lifesaver, has been brought to our attention. The Hellertown Police Department is actively gathering information from the residents of Hellertown Borough regarding who may take an interest in participating as subscribers for this service. Project Lifesaver would issue a monitoring bracelet that would provide real-time location data accessible to loved ones in the event that a vulnerable family member with cognitive conditions should go missing. The location data may also be utilized by Police in locating the missing individual. The one-time initiation fee would be $350.00 with an annual fee of $12.00 to continue service. Interested residents are encouraged to reply with Facebook Messenger to this post or call the Hellertown Police Department at 610-838-7040. Please see the link below for comprehensive program information. http://www.projectlifesaver.org/

Please remain diligent and be alert. Hellertown Police patrol officers are clearly marked and identifiable. If you feel suspicious about the legitamacy police car/officer that is attempting to stop your vehicle, acknowledge that you see them by activating vehicle hazard lighting while proceeding to a nearby area that is well lit and among the general public while complying with the stop. You may call the Northampton County 911 Center at 610-759-2200 for confirmation that the officer stopping you is in fact legitimate.

***UPDATE ON PEDESTRIAN SAFETY PROGRAM*** On 5/25/2017 the Hellertown Police Department completed it’s first informational crosswalk initiative. The initiative was from 5pm to 9pm and conducted at the intersections of Main Street and Chestnut Street, Thomas Avenue and Linden Avenue. A total of 200 informational pamphlets were handed out with 170 being given to drivers and 30 to pedestrians. We also wrote 8 citations for vehicle violations. This initiative will continue at other intersections so please remember to obey all crosswalk laws.

The Hellertown Police Department will be addressing the issue of pedestrian and crosswalk safety. An increased presence should be expected in cases of crosswalk and speeding violations along Main street to which HPD Officers will be providing violators with informational handouts pertaining to current traffic law with the primary goal of public safety in mind. Pedestrians will also be provided information regarding proper usage of crosswalks if violations are observed. The posted speed limit on Rt. 412/Main st. from Cherry Lane/Kiernan Avenue south until Walnut Street is 30 MPH and will be strictly enforced. See below educational information and video, please stay safe! https://www.nhtsa.gov/road-safety/pedestrian-safety
