In the wake of the horrific tragedy at Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, PA and other tragedies in our nation, we would like to express our deepest thoughts to those affected.  The New Castle City Police Department will continue to support the needs of individuals, families, and community groups in our City. The NCPD wanted to share resources that may be helpful. If you have any questions or would like a member of the NCPD to come to your organization to discuss emergency action planning please contact us at 724-656-3580.
