 Police Department

 

The Old Lycoming Township Police Department origin dates back to the 1951.  Then, Police Chief Carl Rosser, was a very active officer.  Many news accounts describe Chief Rosser as handling all types of police incidents in his effort to maintain a safe Township.  The "Father" of the modern day Old Lycoming Township Police Department is former Chief Salvatore A. Casale.  Chief Casale began his career at Old Lycoming Police Department in 1969 and retired in June 2002.  Chief Casale is credited with developing and providing services to Township residents that has resulted in many local, state, and nationally recognized awards.  

Chief R. Mark Lusk was the department's second full-time police chief, after Chief Casale.  Chief Lusk is credited with providing leadership, foresight, compassion and dedication to our community.  He also has received many awards, achievements and accomplishments.  

Chief William C. Solomon began his career with the department in 1984 and was named Chief of Police in 2007 and retired as Chief in 2015.  The recipient of many awards, achievements, and accomplishments, Chief Solomon was also the Coordinator of the Lycoming County DUI Task Force. 

Current Chief Joseph Hope a lifelong resident of Old Lycoming Township began his career in 1996 and was appointed Chief of Police in 2016.  Prior to this Chief Hope was an intern for the Department, and a Pennsylvania State Constable.  The recipient of many awards, Chief Hope is Coordinator of the Lycoming County DUI Task Force and a Nationally Certified Fire Investigator, conducting fire investigations for Old Lycoming, Lycoming and Hepburn Townships. He is the former Fire Chief and current member of the Old Lycoming Volunteer Fire Company.

Chief Christopher Kriner was appointed Chief of Police in 2021.  Chief Kriner began his career with the police department in 2002.  He has served as a Patrolman and Corporal in the patrol division prior to promotion to Detective.  Chief Kriner spent many years as a Detective Sergeant, supervising criminal investigations for Old Lycoming, Lycoming and Hepburn Townships.  Many of those years he worked narcotics investigations with the state’s Bureau of Narcotics Enforcement and then worked organized and drug crimes with the FBI Safe Streets Task Force.  Chief Kriner is the recipient of many exceptional duty awards.

The Old Lycoming Township Police Department takes great pride in the diverse police services it provides.  If Old Lycoming Police Department personnel are unable to provide direct assistance, every reasonable effort is taken to assist our residents, business community, and visitors to our fine community.  After all, the Old Lycoming Township Police Department is here to serve and protect!! 
 
 
   
FROM THE OLD LYCOMING TOWNSHIP POLICE DEPARTMENT QUESTION AND ANSWER CORNER   
 
NOTE:  The following are the more common questions that you, the residents, ask our personnel.  It is our goal to help you better understand our operation and assist you in many different ways . . . and thanks for your support!
 
                                                                                            
 
QUESTION:  WHAT PHONE NUMBERS SHOULD WE USE TO CALL THE OLD LYCOMING TOWNSHIP POLICE DEPARTMENT?
 
ANSWER:  The Old Lycoming Township Police Department has been part of the Lycoming County 911 system since it's inception in 1976.  The 911 center is located at the former Lysock View on Warrensville Road, Loyalsock Township.  The three telephone numbers used to contact us are: 
 
911
Emergencies and police calls that you think may be emergencies but are unsure.
This is a 24 hour / 365 day a year number.  If not sure  -  DIAL 911 !!!
 
570-433-3166  
Non-emergency police calls (this is a local call).  This is a 24 hour / 365 day a year number.
All other, call for police response.
 
570-323-4987 
This number is not for police incident calls.  It is to make appointments, to call and ask a
question, and discuss police administrative issues.  This number is a police administrative
office number.  During normal business hours of Monday - Friday from 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM
administrative personnel are working.  This excludes legal holidays.
 
QUESTION:  I STOPPED AT YOUR OFFICE (POLICE HEADQUARTERS) BUT NO ONE ANSWERED AND YOU, (OLD LYCOMING TOWNSHIP POLICE DEPARTMENT) WERE NOT WORKING.
 
ANSWER:  Nothing is further from the truth.  The Old Lycoming Township Police Department is a full service police department - WORKING 24 HOURS A DAY AND 7 DAYS A WEEK,  which we have been doing since becoming full time in March, 1974.  The Old Lycoming Township Police Department clerical and police administrative offices follow the same business hours schedule as the township municipal offices.  Our clerical and administrative hours are Monday - Friday from 8:00 AM until 4:30 PM.  Residents stopping at our municipal building after business hours may ring our intercom and speak to an officer - if an officer is available inside police headquarters. The intercom is at the main entrance to our Police Department(near the flag pole).  You may also choose to go home and call us - depending upon the urgency of your message. 
 
QUESTION:  I HEARD (OR OBSERVED) SOMETHING SUSPICIOUS LAST NIGHT BUT I DID NOT WANT TO BOTHER THE POLICE . . . . . . SO I WAITED TO CALL YOU LATER TODAY (OR DAYS LATER) OR DID NOT CALL AT ALL !
 
ANSWER:  This is very frustrating for the Old Lycoming Township Police Department!!  Our officers are here to respond to all types of suspicious activities and unknown types of activities that, for any number of reasons, either upsets, concerns or troubles our residents.  Too frequently, officers do not get dispatched for this exact reason.  The Old Lycoming Township Police Department would solve more crime and stop more crime if we were called more often by our residents and business merchants as soon as ANYTHING OUT OF THE ORDINARY is observed.  It makes better sense - from a safe community standpoint - to respond to a dozen "no problem" type calls than miss one real live crime being committed against our residents !!  PLEASE CALL US ANY HOUR OF THE DAY OR NIGHT . . . . . . and remember, just because most of our residents may be sleeping - our officers are working all three shifts:  day shift, second shift, and the midnight shift.  "Calls for service" (as we call them) keep us busy and actually help the shift move along.  It is what we are here for . . . to better serve you.
