Codes Memorandum – Subject: Suspicious Person

The Office of Code Enforcement would like to inform the public that:

On Thursday 06-02-16 the Steelton Police responded to two separate locations in the borough for a suspicious person knocking on residents doors. In the first incident the suspect knocked on the resident’s door and claimed he needed to check her wiring of her house. When the resident refused the male drove away. Approximately two hours later the suspect approached another resident and was inquiring to his home security system. He is described as a white male in his late 20’s to early 30’s, wearing a baseball cap, carrying a clip board and driving a light colored sedan that is possibly silver. Anyone who has been contacted by a male matching this description is asked to contact the Steelton Police.

We would like to warn the public not to let any suspicious person claiming to be an inspector into their home, and to immediately call the Office of Code Enforcement at 717-939-1146, or the police non-emergency number at 717-939-9841 if they are approached by someone they think is falsely identifying themselves as a codes inspector. Our inspectors all wear white shirts which are clearly marked “Code Enforcement” and carry Borough-Issued Identification Cards and Badges. Over 99% of the time prior notice of an inspection is given so it’s rare for an inspector to just show up and demand entry inside of a property.

The Office of Code Enforcement is open Monday thru Thursday from 8AM to 4:30PM and on Friday from 8AM to 4PM. Please feel free to contact a staff member for any further questions or concerns.

Thank you
Amrinder Singh – Building Code Official
