Community Policing

The Suffern Police Department strives to bring about true community policing. The Suffern Police Department believes in total community policing where all officers contribute to the community policing concept. We realize that every contact with the public is an opportunity to show residents and visitors a professional police service.

The Suffern Police Department has the advantage of serving a small geographical area where officers know residents and residents know officers – whether through school, sports, community groups or everyday contacts. The Suffern Police Department dedicates two officers to addressing specific community and quality of life issues in a proactive manner, to avoid problems down the road. In addition the department maintains a bicycle patrol unit, a foot patrol in the downtown area and a very active DARE program in several schools in the Suffern Central School District.

Our Department also provides station tours to local childrens’ groups, speakers on a variety of topics for community events, civic associations, and other interested community groups. Please contact us if you are interested in a presentation.
