About the Hastings-on-Hudson Police
The Police Department, headquartered in the Municipal Building is responsible for the preservation of the peace, protection of life property, enforcement of all laws and arrests of violators, and prevention and detection of crime. The department responds to approximately 6,500 calls per year. Most arrests made are misdemeanors. Hastings maintains one of the lowest crime rates in the County and the State.
A three-member Police Commission, appointed by the Board of Trustees, serves as a liaison between the department and the Board.
Departmental operations are under the command of the Police Chief. Other ranks in descending order include a lieutenant, four sergeants, two detectives, and thirteen patrolmen. A Youth Officer handles most juvenile cases and we employ six part-time school crossing guards. Qualifications for becoming a policeman are established by the New York State Civil Service Commission. New appointees must also pass 720-hour basic training course. All Hastings Officers must reside in Westchester.
The department is supported by a wide range of modern crime prevention and computer equipment, which includes a special "Red Phone" and ''Hot Line" linking it to the Westchester County Police and all other police departments. Other programs include the DARE program Crime Prevention and Neighborhood Watch.
The jail, located in the Municipal Building, contains four cells used for the detention of short term prisoners. Persons held for trial are remanded to the County Jail.
