Privacy Policy

Information presented on this website is collected, maintained, and provided for the convenience of the user. While every effort is made to keep such information accurate and up-to-date, the York Area Regional Police Department (“YAPD”) does not certify the authenticity of any information that is provided on this website. Under no circumstances will the YAPD be liable for any actions taken or omissions made from reliance on any information contained herein from whatever source nor will the YAPD be liable for any other consequences from any such reliance.

The YAPD will keep your personal information private and secure. When you submit information that includes personal data to the Police Department through this web site, we retain your information for follow-up purposes only. This process is identical to the system employed when you report a crime or other problem to your respective patrol district or to a police officer. As a consequence, your name will not be disclosed outside this department except as required and permitted by law.

The YAPD will not rent, sell or give away any personally identifying information entered into the website (name, address, phone number, etc…) to third parties for marketing or mailing list purposes without your permission. We will also not disclose credit card information, except for purposes related to your transaction or as required by law.

The YAPD does not use cookies to collect information.

The YAPD strives to ensure the safeguarding of the submission of information by implementing detailed security and technology policies. The security of all information associated with our Users is an important concern to Us. We exercise care in providing secure transmission of Your information from Your computer to Our servers. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Whenever You give out information over the internet, that information can be collected and used by entities you do not know. As a result, We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Us or from Our servers, and You do so at Your own risk. Once we receive Your transmission, the YAPD uses industry standard efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your information; however, perfect security is impossible.

As such, the YAPD is not responsible for the contents of such other web sites, and inclusion of such links does not constitute an endorsement of content, viewpoint, policies, product or services of that web site or any association with their operators. Our privacy policy does not extend to anything that is inherent in the operation of the internet or which is beyond the YAPD’s control. Please consult each web site’s privacy policy. The YAPD is not responsible for the actions of third parties.

Information provided on the YAPD’s web site is intended to allow the public immediate access to information concerning the YAPD. While all attempts are made to provide accurate, timely and reliable information, we recognize the possibility of human and/or mechanical error. Therefore, the YAPD, its boards, officers and employees, expressly deny any warranty on the accuracy, reliability or timeliness of any information published by the YAPD and shall not be held liable for any losses caused by reliance upon the accuracy, reliability or timeliness of such information. Any person who relies on such information does so at his or her own risk.

Communications to the YAPD via this web site shall in no way be deemed to constitute legal or official notice to the areas served by YAPD, its agencies, officers, employees, representatives or agents with respect to any existing, pending or future cause of action or for any other purpose against the YAPD, its agencies, officers, employees, representatives or agents, where notice is required by Federal, State or Local law.
