Police Policies & Procedures

The Borough of Carlisle announced on September 10, 2020 of its intention to elevate transparency and advance public awareness of departmental policies, training, and practices by providing online access to the Carlisle Police Department policies.  

The Borough of Carlisle Police Department policies meet the standards of The Pennsylvania Law Enforcement Accreditation Commission (PLEAC).  These standards help ensure that the police department policies are current, and that the organization is committed to best practices that lead to the Department’s ability to respond to our community’s needs efficiently, effectively and professionally. These policies are considered living documents that may require revisions in response to  changes to laws, accreditation standards, court decisions, etc.  Additionally , some policies or sections of policies may include information on staffing levels, deployment, response tactics, etc., that may be deemed law enforcement sensitive by legal counsel. Thus, a reader may find some policies are partially redacted and others not published if legal counsel has deemed that disclosure of contents could place police officers or the general public at risk.     

Please continue to check our website often as policies will be uploaded periodically following legal counsel’s review of each policy. 

Should any questions arise regarding a policy, please feel free to contact Police Chief Taro Landis at tlandis@carlislepa.org or Sergeant W. “Dave” Miller at:  wmiller@carlislepa.org
