How to Contact the Police

While the Police Department is staffed around the clock, Police Headquarters is not. If you need to report a crime or see an Officer immediately, you should contact York County Control by dialing 911. If you need to contact the Police for a non-emergency matter you can call 717-854-5571. The telephone number for headquarters (717-432-3317) is administrative in nature and is frequently answered by a machine that will allow you to leave a message. Believe it or not, some folks have actually left messages to report traffic accidents or other emergencies. REMEMBER DIAL 911.
