April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Sexual assault is a serious and widespread problem across our country as well as internationally. Nearly 1 in 6 women and 1 in 33 men in the U.S. have experienced rape or attempted rape at some point in their lives. Please join us in spreading the word of positive informed consent, victims’ rights and sexual assault awareness.

Carlisle PD’s Summer Fiss Tix Program

The Carlisle Police Department’s Fiss’ Tix program is starting for the summer! While out on patrol, officers will be on the lookout for kids wearing bicycle helmets, looking both ways before crossing the street and using bicycle hand signals. If “caught” violators will get a “ticket” for a FREE ice cream cone from Fiss’!

BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE!…….. Make sure to fill out the back of the ticket with the child’s name, address and phone # and at the end of the summer a winner will be drawn to receive a voucher for a new bicycle!

We would like to thank Fiss’ for their continued partnership of this great program!
