A Bit of History about the Dobbs Ferry Police Department
A law enforcement presence within the Village of Dobbs Ferry dates back to 1873 when Lawrence Boyle was appointed to the position of Police Constable. At the initial time of his appointment the Village was unable to provide him the funds to purchase a uniform. He was allotted 50 cents a month to purchase kerosene to light the only two lanterns located on Main Street. By 1879, the Dobbs Ferry Constabulary had added William Boyle, Charles Francis, Timothy Cullinan, Thomas Eaton, Anthony Grancy, and Charles Hauptman to its ranks.
It was not until June 19, 1922, that the Dobbs Ferry Village Board unanimously votes on and approves the formation of the Village of Dobbs Ferry Police Department. Captain Patrick Costello is promoted to the position of Chief of Police at a salary of $150.00 a month. Peter Rodgers, Edward Fay, and Edward Coffey were all officially appointed to the position of Police Officer at a salary of $130.00 a month.
