This annual report for 2017 contains statistics and information about the performance of the Rye Brook Police Department to keep the public informed about public safety in Rye Brook, New York. It is not possible to measure and quantify everything performed by a police department, overall, crime is low and Rye Brook remains a safe place to live and raise a family.
The Rye Brook Police Department is in its third year of a five year New York State Accreditation period and this past October we went through our mid-term onsite assessment and we received a positive review. Becoming a New York State Accredited police department demonstrates to the public each police officer’s commitment toward professionalism.
I would like to extend my heartfelt appreciation to the men and women of the department for their extraordinary work effort and commitment to serving the citizens of our community. Their dedication is evident by our continued strides in building stronger partnerships with our citizens, business owners, community leaders, and visitors. Exceptional service to the community continues to remain our focus.
Thank you to all that support the Rye Brook Police Department as we will continue to provide excellent and professional public service. I am proud to be the Police Chief of this Department and I look forward to an exciting and productive 2018.
Gregory J. Austin
Chief of Police
