Police Incident Reports

Police incident report copies can be released under the Pennsylvania Right to Know Law. Copies can be obtained by completing a "Right To Know Form" available at police headquarters or downloaded from the "Documents and Forms" webpage. The charge for report copies are 25 cents per page. Police investigative reports can only be released by court order.

Parking Tickets & Citations

Parking tickets may be paid by mail by sending a check or money order, along with the parking ticket, to the Towamencin Township Police Department, 1090 Troxel Road, PO Box 303, Kulpsville, PA 19443 or in person at the Police Department Office during regular hours.

If you desire to plead "not guilty" to a parking ticket and would like to request a hearing, please wait until you receive a citation in the mail; however, please be advised that if you are found guilty at the hearing, the cost will be substantially increased from the cost of the original parking ticket.

All traffic and non-traffic citations must be paid by pleading "guilty" on the citation and then sending the fine and costs listed to the District Court on the citation. Those who wish to request a hearing for any traffic or non-traffic citation should plead "not guilty" on the citation and then send that part of the citation to District Court requesting a hearing date.

Fingerprinting

Fingerprinting can be performed for township residents and township businesses at the Police Department for employment purposes, name changes, etc. at no cost.

Non-residents are charged a fee of $25.00. Fingerprinting is done by appointment only. Please contact the Police Department's non-emergency number at (215) 368-7606 to schedule an appointment. We cannot perform fingerprinting for immigration purposes. Please contact your nearest Immigration Department for a listing of their offices.

Soliciting & Vendor Permits

Solicitor or vendor permits can be obtained at the police department utilizing the following guidelines:

If you are planning on soliciting door-to-door attempting to sell a product where you will be taking payments or deposits, or otherwise distributing pamphlets or business flyers, a permit and fee payment is required. You will need to present a driver's license, Pennsylvania Identification Card or other forms of identification at the time of application. You will also be required to complete a background check before the permit is approved and issued.

If you are soliciting for non-profit or charitable organizations or groups the permits are no charge. However, you must still register with the Police Department and each individual must have identification and will be issued a permit card at time the application is approved.

You can obtain general information on this or any other matters by calling the Towamencin Township Police Department Office at (215) 368-7606.
