This website is a continuing effort to stay in touch with the community we serve. We have revised our menu selection to include many items that we think will be helpful to our residents and visitors to Stony Point. Please take some time to review our new site. If there is something that you think could be improved upon, let us know. We will be reviewing your input and making changes where appropriate.
The Stony Point Police Department is currently operating at a strength of twenty-six full-time officers and three part-time officers in addition to an auxiliary force. We are supplemented by one full-time and two part-time clerical staff. We are charged with providing law enforcement service for the Town of Stony Point, an area of over twenty square miles. We are a full- service agency that has practiced, “Community Policing” since our inception in 1967.
Our most visible asset is our uniform force that patrols our Township, around the clock, in our recently re-designed black & silver patrol cars. In addition to patrol coverage, the uniform force supports our Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Unit, Child Safety Seat program and our Crime Prevention Program.
Our Detective Bureau compliments our uniform force by providing highly trained and seasoned Detectives who are adept at criminal investigations. In addition to their normal cases, the Detective Bureau conducts our Neighborhood Watch, Operation Safeguard and Operation Smart Sales programs.
Our Youth Bureau provides specialized investigation on all cases involving our community’s youth. Our Youth Officer is also responsible for our Youth Court, Police Athletic League, Youth Police Academy and Community Service Programs. The Youth Bureau works in conjunction with the Uniform Force and the Detective Bureau and to insure the safety of our youth.
Our agency also participates in “shared services” programs such as Rockland Regional Rescue, Entry and Counterterrorism Team (REACT). Participation in programs such as these allows our agency to provide specialized services to our residents that otherwise might not be possible due to personnel and fiscal constraints.
The men and women of the Stony Point Police Department take great pride in providing our community with a high level of police service. Their hard work and dedication is evidenced by our community having one of the lowest crime rates for a Township our size in New York State. However, a great deal of what our agency can accomplish is dependant on community participation. We rely on our citizens to be our eyes and ears and to report suspicious activity as it is observed.
Working in partnership with our residents will insure that Stony Point remains a safe community in the future.
Chief of Police
