About the Town of Bedford Police
The Bedford Police Department operates around the clock, seven days a week and provides the latest in professional police protection. It is led by a Police Chief and three Lieutenants who serve as commanders of the patrol, administration and staff services divisions.

The department includes a Detective Bureau with a full time Detective/Youth Officer who is responsible for juvenile and youth related matters including the DARE program and Police Explorer Program. He works closely with schools and is liaison to the local drug abuse prevention council. A "School Resource Officer" is assigned to work with the various schools in the Town as well.

Also under the aegis of the Police Department, is the civilian Dog Control Officer who responds to calls regarding lost or misbehaving animals.

Civilian Parking Enforcement Officers patrol the Town's eight business and commuter parking lots to insure compliance with the permit system as well as the hamlet areas to enforce parking restrictions.

School Crossing Guards, also civilian employees, are assigned near the Town's schools where needed.

The department is the primary answering point for all 911 calls in the Town. Police, fire and emergency medical services are dispatched through the 911 system.

Child Car Safety Seat Installation Program Offered by Police Department
The Bedford Police Department conducts child safety seat inspections to determine if seats are installed correctly and meet safety standards. Inspections are conducted on the last Wednesday of the month at Mt Kisco Honda (650 Bedford Rd), from 4pm to 7pm. Inspections and installations are conducted on a first come, first served basis. Child Seats are also available to families that are in need of a child seat and cannot afford one.

Bedford Community Emergency Response Team (C.E.R.T)
The Police Department recognizes the need to be able to incorporate and utilize volunteer help during certain emergency or disaster situations. In this regard, the department has implemented a nationally recognized program called Community Emergency Response Team, otherwise known as CERT.

Project ChildSafe
Bedford Police Department in conjunction with Project Safe Neighborhoods is again promoting a gun-locking safety program called “Project Childsafe.” This program is designed to place FREE Master Lock trigger gunlocks in the hands of local residents. These gunlocks may be used with any style firearm.

Further, Project Childsafe is a nationwide program to help ensure safe and responsible firearms ownership and storage, develop by the National Shooting Sports Foundation and supported by a U.S. Department of Justice grant.
