On October 25, 1967, Stephen G Scurti, a New York State Trooper working out of the Stony Point Barracks for the past four years, resigned his appointment to the New York State Police to assume the position of Stony Point’s 1st Chief of Police. Chief Scurti, the sole full-time Police Officer, worked out of one room located in the rear of the Town Hall on East Main Street.
In 1971, the Police department moved to 112 West Main Street with eight full-time Police Officers and a smaller part-time complement as well as several Crossing Guards.
As the demand for services increased the need for some specialization became apparent. The Stony Point Detective Bureau was formed in July 1973.
In 1980, the Police Department moved to its present location at 79 Rte 210. The facility was constructed on land donated by Eleanor Allison, in memory of Calvin T Allison. The building is a modern facility constructed to serve the changing needs of today’s police services.
In August 1981, the Stony Point Youth Bureau was established.
In 1991 the Stony Point Police Department was one of the first Police Departments in the State of New York, and the first in Rockland County, to become fully accredited, exemplifying its leadership in the police professional law enforcement community.
In May of 1999 the department started the Stony Point Youth Court.
On May 27, 2011 Chief Patrick M. Brophy retired after 29 years of service to the Stony Point Police Department. Lieutenant Brian J. Moore was appointed Chief of Police.
