About Us

The Manheim Township Police Department serves the communities of Manheim Township, East Petersburg Borough, and Lancaster Township by protecting citizens and property, preventing crime, enforcing laws, and maintaining order.  Beginning as a small three-officer department in the 1950's, the department has grown into a highly specialized and effective modern police force with a full array of crime fighting and policing capabilities.  Our proactive approach to law enforcement and heavy involvement in community policing provides the citizens we serve with the highest quality service available.  Starting in 2008, the police department proudly became accredited by the Pennsylvania Law Enforcement Accreditation Commission and continues to be so to this day.
