A Message from the Chief:

As Chief of Police, I’m privileged to welcome you to the West Manheim Twp. Police Department web site. It’s my hope that this site provides a convenient source of information on the department, the services we provide and up to date information on crime trends and active investigations.

Our motto “PROUDLY SERVING OUR COMMUNITY”, is reflected in the professional services provided. Any given day officers may be found investigating a serious felony crime or simply helping a stranded motorist. Regardless of the task, officers will perform with the utmost attention to detail accompanied by the highest level of respect and concern for everyone who calls upon them for assistance.

While we regularly engage in proactive patrol, our residents remain a highly valued source of information. Please do not hesitate to report any suspicious activity or concerns without delay by calling York County 911. Patrols are radio dispatched for a quicker, more efficient response.

The overwhelming support we receive from our community is truly appreciated. Our goal is not only to maintain but enhance that relationship as it serves as the foundation for a successful police/community partnership.

In closing, I hope you find the website easy to navigate and a valuable resource. Please return again for updates and additional information.
