The Manheim Township Police Department established several new programs.

Crime and Traffic Alerts – Each month we publish articles featuring concerns, activity or notices regarding crime and traffic issues that are occurring in Manheim Township, and East Petersburg Borough.

Email Alert System: We encourage everyone to sign up for the Email Alert system, and to frequently check the Township website at www.manheimtownship.org. If you reside in East Petersburg Borough you may access these features on this site by CLICKING HERE.  By clicking on the appropriate box, citizens may enroll in this system which automatically sends the Crime, Traffic or Missing Person Alerts to their individual email address. This feature allows you to view the alerts or emergency notifications immediately as they are posted.

Crime and Crash Maps: We have published four sets of maps for 2003 and four sets for 2004. The 2003 maps will show you the locations of December incidents in color and the locations of the rest of the year’s incidents in gray. The 2004 maps will show locations of incidents of the most current month available in color and the previous months’ incident locations of 2004 in gray. By clicking on the appropriate link you can select the map you wish to view. The maps published are Crimes Against People on one map (Robberies, Rapes, Aggravated Assaults, Simple Assaults and Homicides), Crimes Against Property which are separated onto two maps (One contains Burglaries, Thefts and Vehicle Thefts and the second contains Criminal Mischiefs) and the fourth has Traffic Crashes.

**NOTICE FROM MANHEIM TOWNSHIP POLICE DEPARTMENT**

The Manheim Township Police Department announces the implementation of an anonymous Tip Line to turn in a criminal or drug dealer, or to report criminal activity.

The anonymous tip line is NOT for emergencies or for reporting criminal activity in progress. If you have an emergency or are viewing criminal or suspicious activity in progress, dial 911 immediately.

We encourage everyone – including our young people – to use the Tip Line to anonymously report criminal activity or to inform on a drug dealer operating within our community.

Telephone calls received on the anonymous tip line will be recorded by voice mail on a telephone located within our Detective Division. All information received will be evaluated, investigated or disseminated according to established policy. This line is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Please join us in keeping Manheim Township and East Petersburg Borough a quality place to live. By working together we can make our community safer!
