A Brief Message

To Those We Serve,

As we all venture through these unprecedented times, we wanted to reach out to those we serve.  NHPD has been in contact with New Holland Ambulance and Garden Spot Fire Rescue to ensure that all emergency services remain prepared to respond when needed.  Though some of our procedures may have changed due to Covid-19, our dedication and service to the community have not.  You may notice our officers stand a little further away, or that they probably won't shake your hand.  We can almost ensure you that this has nothing to do with anyone's hygiene, or lack thereof.  If you call us we might speak to you over the phone instead of physically coming to your location.  This will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.  Please don't be offended.  We are trying to ensure the health and safety of our officers, which will allow us to ensure the health and safety of all of you.

We also want to remind you that New Holland and Earl Township are great communities to be a part of.  Part of that reason is because of all of our local businesses.  This will be a trying time for many businesses in our area.  We know that this will also be a trying time for many of you.  Please keep our businesses in mind.  Patronize them as long as they remain open and you are able to.  Purchase a gift card from them for future use.  We can all work together as a community to get through this unforeseen obstacle that presented itself.  We have seen the compassion and selflessness that envelopes our community in the past.  We have no doubt that this will be seen and tested once more.

We wish everyone well and hope this message finds you full of health and positivity. 

Sincerely,

New Holland Police Department
