As the new Chief of Police for the Sleepy Hollow Police Department I would like to welcome you to our section of the Village of Sleepy Hollow Website. We hope you will find our homepage easy to navigate and informative. We encourage everyone to view these pages whether you are a resident, business owner or visitor.

Our department works hard to offer a variety of services.  We invite residents to participate in our vacation watch program, community events and Special Olympics initiatives. Our annual report provides a glimpse into our yearly activity and shows that our Police Department regularly performs at a high level in an effort to keep crime low and traffic concerns to a minimum.  Our primary goal is to keep Sleepy Hollow as a safe community to live, raise a family or visit.

Our Police Department is comprised of 15 employees, including 14 sworn police officers. All our officers come to us with a great deal of experience. This allows us to provide services at the highest levels possible; directly benefiting those we are sworn to protect.  As your Chief of Police, I am committed to assuring that we treat all people with dignity and respect.  I am committed to open and constructive lines of communication with all our stakeholders. This will be the foundation of how we go about delivering the services our residents deserve.

I am honored to be your Chief of Police and look forward to working together to move our community into the future.  Please feel free to contact me directly with any issues or concerns which you feel will help our organization provide better services or to recognize outstanding service you have received.
