Residential Emergency Contact Program
The Bellefonte Borough Police Department is offering a service for residents that may live alone, have special living circumstances, and/or have special medical needs.
There are situations when the police department needs to contact a resident’s family member or a close friend. For example, you are away on vacation or extended leave from your home. A situation occurs at your residence and the police cannot contact you, the homeowner. If you have an emergency contact on file with the Police Department, it could be beneficial to you. This program could provide another layer of protection for those living alone.
Who should register? Elderly, residents with special medical needs, those who live alone, those who travel out of town regularly, or anyone who has any type of special circumstances would benefit from having their information or emergency contact information on file and available to the BPD.
What type of information should you provide? Any information that would help the police find someone who needs to know about your welfare. Name, and phone number of your emergency contact, any medical information, and how the Police can gain entry to your residence.
How to register? You can simply call the police station to speak with the Administrative staff, fill out the Emergency Contact Form HERE, or go to the Borough Building to complete the Emergency Contact Form in person. You may also email any information that you wish to provide to the Police Department at [email protected].
