At the request of Lower Makefield Township Police Department, all residents requested to shelter in place due to a black bear sighting. Specifically the Yardley Hunt Development residents. If sighted please call 911 immediately. The Game Commission is en route.

LMTPD is asking that you refrain from coming to Headquarters for non-essential administrative issues or requests. Many questions and concerns can be addressed by phone. Please contact us at 215-493-4055 Monday-Friday between 8:30AM-4:30PM for advice on email and other digital means of obtaining information prior to coming to Headquarters.

The Township will continue to hold regularly publicly scheduled meetings until advised differently from the Office of Emergency Management.

The Township has instituted disinfecting protocols for all Township buildings.  Every day, prior to the Municipal Building and Community Center opening, we will disinfect all counters, ledges, door knobs, push bars, and bathrooms with CDC recognized products.  Staff will also continue this process, several times throughout the day, while the buildings are open.
