Lancaster Township does not have its own police force. It has contracted with the Manheim Township Police Department beginning January 1, 2010. The department is led by Chief Neil Harkins. The township receives excellent, 24-hour protection. There are eight full-time officers assigned to Lancaster Township in addition to several lieutenants and sergeants who back them up. The resources and benefits of contracting with the Manheim Township Police are many and we look forward to a continuing relationship for years to come.
The township is fortunate to have Lancaster County Wide Communications (664-1180) available to its residents. This agency provides all police dispatching for the county and is to be used for any non-emergency police call. For an emergency situation, dial 911.
