Yes. We recommend residents notify the LPT PD of your vacation departure and return dates. We also will document other information such as: lighting at the residence; vehicles at the residence; emergency contact should there be an issue at the residence, etc. All officers will have access to this information.
Parking tickets can be paid at the LPT PD during business hours, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. We also provide a drop box at the LPT PD entrance door for payment after hours. Tickets can also be paid via First Class U.S. Mail.
Any domesticated animal captured by the contracted Animal Control Officer can be located and picked up by going to the Pottstown Police Department. The animal's owner will be required to provide proof of the current year's dog license, complete required paperwork and pay the scheduled kennel fees before the animal will be released. Lower Pottsgrove Township does not control the scheduled kennel fees.
Yes, we have green “MedReturn” box in the lobby to the police station. Persons wishing to dispose of unused medication may do so by using this box. It is self-serve during normal business hours. After hours you can request an officer return to the station to let you into the lobby. The return box is not meant to accept sharps or liquids, just pills. If you have liquid medication consider dumping them into cat litter and then putting out to curbside trash. If you have sharps, they must be disposed of privately in a proper manner for sharps/bio-hazard disposal. Check with your local pharmacy or doctors office.
