Public Information Announcement

The Hatfield Township Police Department is investigating several thefts from vehicles and two stolen vehicles which occurred at local apartment complexes.  We would like to take an opportunity to remind everyone to lock your vehicle at all times.  Please do not leave things such as a purse, wallet, cash/coins, firearms or other valuable items visible in your car.  These thefts are usually a crime of opportunity where the suspects check door handles and if they are unlocked they will enter your car and steal things.  Many of these crimes can be prevented by simply locking your vehicle and taking your key fob with you.
