Reverse 911- Smart Safety Alerts by Phone: 

In the event of a major emergency, Lehigh County Emergency Management provides residents and visitors with a telephonic safety alert system called REVERSE 911.

You may already have this valuable service. Traditional wireline telephone systems—such as Verizon, Ironton, Service Electric, Frontier, Blue Ridge and RCN—are already in the REVERSE 911 system, even unlisted  numbers.

But if you have “landline VOIP” phone service (Vonage and Magic Jack are a few examples) you may have to register your number for REVERSE 911. Also if you want your wireless cell phone notified by REVERSE 911, you must register your number. Note that during times of widespread emergency situations, cellular telephone networks may be overloaded so messages may not be sent by wireless carriers in a timely manner.

TO REGISTER FOR REVERSE 911 go to www.ema.lehighcounty.org. In the Search Box (in upper right of homepage) type in “REVERSE 911.” You will be taken to Registration Instructions and additional facts about this potentially lifesaving, emergency alert service.


Vacation Checks:

As a courtesy to all Upper Macungie Township residents, UMTPD officers will conduct security checks of your home, at your request, if you are leaving town on vacation. CLICK HERE for more information.


Crime Mapping:

Want to find out where crime is happening in Upper Macungie? Just go online.







Residents can monitor Upper Macungie crime with Crime Mapping website.  Just visit this link for mapping details.

Our Police Department began using the Crime Mapping website to allow residents to map out and analyze crime in their neighborhoods.

“We want you to use the site to help keep you informed. We believe that a well-informed public has been proven to be effective in reducing crime. It is our hope that these additional steps will help our residents look out for each other, and help the department solve crimes.” Lt. Joseph Wilson.

The website maps 15 different types of crime, including theft, burglaries and DUIs. You can search by crime type, or by date.
