Welcome to the Lancaster Bureau of Police (LBOP) website. We at LBOP are committed to maintaining the privacy and security of the personal information of all the visitors to this website. As a part of that commitment, we want all of our visitors to know:

We passively collect information that is automatically sent to us by your web browser. This information typically includes your domain name. It may also contain your user name. The amount of information sent depends on the settings you have on your web browser; please refer to your browser if you want to learn what information it sends.
We use the information we automatically receive from your browser to see which pages you visit within our site, which site you visited before coming to ours, and where you go after you leave. We at LBOP can then develop statistics that are very helpful to understanding how our visitors use our site. This statistical data is interpreted by LBOP in an effort to present website content that users are seeking in a format they find most helpful. This data is not linked to personally identifiable information.
We collect information when you contact us or respond to surveys, questionnaires or applications we make available. If you e-mail us, you are voluntarily releasing information to us. If you submit an online form, you are also voluntarily releasing any information collected on that form. You may decide not to answer any questions; if you do, you may still continue your visit, but we may elect not to provide you the related services or features.
LBOP may use any of the information gathered at this site for any legal purpose. We may analyze the information for historical, statistical or scientific purposes. We may also use it to investigate security breaches or to cooperate with authorities pursuant to a legal matter.
