Commissioner Of Police
Our mission is to provide quality policing to the residents and visitors of our great Village. The crime rate in the Village continues to be at historic lows. Rockville Centre remains one of the safest communities in the Metropolitan area.
The Department maintains accreditation by New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services, one of the few agencies in the Metropolitan Region. This requires a strict training program which benefits the community in that more highly trained members are responsible for the safety of the community. The Police Department remains committed to keeping Rockville Centre safe and maintaining an excellent quality of life for the residents.
At a time when many police departments come under attack nationally, I want to thank the members of this community for the support they show their police. I receive a great deal of correspondence from residents and visitors praising the efforts of our members. I can assure you that this Police Department is truly committed to protecting the residents and visitors of our community.
A challenge we all face nationally is increased substance abuse. Children at an early age are experimenting with alcohol, marijuana, and prescription drugs, which leads to the opiate epidemic the country is currently experiencing. A child that abuses these substances at an early age is more apt to experience substance dependency in later life. Your Police Department is committed to ridding the Village of illegal drugs and keeping our children safe.
Thank you again for the support you provide your Police Department. Let’s all work together to keep this community the great Village that it is.
