Accessing Public Safety Information

Citizens of Carlisle Borough,

The Carlisle Police Department is always working to make the Borough of Carlisle a safe place to live, work, and visit.

From time to time, citizens wish to know why there are police cars, or officer presence, on a particular street. There are several methods of finding out what is going on in your neighborhood:

  • Option 1: Sign up on the Department’s CRIMEWATCH app at: The CRIMEWATCH app allows you to see where crimes occur, arrests, and wanted subjects.
  • Option 2: Contact one of our Public Safety Coordinators by e-mail. Ed Martin can be contacted at Please note that these individuals are trained and have been instructed to give general information in reference to Police matters in the Borough.

 Note: A response to a citizen’s inquiry may be delayed depending on the details regarding certain requested subject matter and/or work schedules.

  • Option 3: For those citizens wishing to file a formal request for information, this may be accomplished through the filing of a “Right to Know” request through the Borough’s Right to Know Officer, Ms. Joyce Stone. The Right to Know form can be found here on the Borough website: Right to Know Policy. Ms. Stone is also available via phone at: 717-240-6920 or e-mail at
