Protecting the Borough’s Residents and Property
Whitehall takes the health and safety of our residents very seriously. In fact, that is one reason why the Borough exists—our founders felt underserved by the Baldwin Township authorities.
With our own police and fire departments, and agreements with other emergency response entities in the area, today we live comfortably with the knowledge that our residents have easy access to highly trained, responsive emergency services.
Pets and Animal Control
Pets are part of the family, too! They’re also subject to a number of programs and regulations, which you can learn more about on the Pets and Animal Control page linked below.

Whitehall Police Department
Whitehall Borough leadership and our Police Department are ever mindful of the safety of our residents. Residents and newcomers alike say that our reputation as a safe community is a major factor in drawing people into our community and keeping them here.
