Welcome to the Manchester Township Division of Police website, a comprehensive online tool designed to keep our residents and visitors updated with information regarding current police activity and the wide variety of services that we provide.

The Division of Police, an integral part of the Manchester Township Department of Public Safety, is a specialized law enforcement organization consisting of highly trained professionals. These officers pride themselves in delivering services with the highest levels of professionalism, integrity and respect. As Manchester Township’s Chief of Police, I am extremely proud of the individuals who make up this organization and their outstanding commitment to protect and serve.

Manchester Township Police officers are an integral part of the community. Whether on patrol or in a specialized unit, these officers are highly visibility and offer prompt accessibility to the general public. When you see our officers out and about in the community, remember that they are there for you, enforcing laws, ensuring public safety, and responding to emergent and routine calls for service.

Although our organization constantly strives to be the best of the best and to deliver expert police services, I believe that effective public safety is a collaborative effort. Of course, we in law enforcement bear the primary responsibility for crime prevention and interdiction, but the community can do its part as well. We rely on you to be alert to possible crime, to report crimes in progress and to take prudent steps to protect yourself and your family. Together, we can form an effective alliance toward preserving the safe community we all want and deserve.

As you browse through these website pages, you will find a wide variety of information detailing the services we provide. The website has been designed to not only make the Manchester Township Police Division more transparent, but also to give expedient and easy access to the available information related to police resources.

Please, continue to visit our website often and stay informed about your community.
