Dickinson Township is located in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania. Its history revolves around farms, the schools, churches, mills, stores, blacksmith shops and the businesses that supplied them as well as the industries of the mountains which developed the natural resources of wood, iron ore, sand, clay and phosphorous.
Pennsylvania has recently experienced a number of vehicle break-ins, specifically from the parking lots of gyms, stores, movie theaters, and hotels. Many individuals leave brief cases, purses, wallets, electronics, and other items unattended in vehicles when they are at the gym or shopping. Thieves capitalize on this type of activity by sitting in parking lots watching people or driving and walking through the parking lots looking for a target. They focus on areas where owners will be away from their vehicles for an extended period of time.
Individuals who witness a break-in or see a suspicious individual or vehicle should find a safe location to call 9-1-1. If you are the victim of a vehicle break-in, report the incident to the police immediately.
