The New Holland Police Department has been serving the community since 1926. We currently serve Earl Township and New Holland Borough in beautiful north east Lancaster county on a 24/7 basis. Our community has a total population of over 12,000 residents within 25 square miles. Historically the community has had a strong mix of agriculture and commercial businesses and interests. We are fortunate to maintain that vibrant combination today. We are also the home of the ELANCO School district office, Garden Spot High School and Middle School, as well as New Holland Elementary school.
