“The Mission of the Rockville Centre Police Department is to provide quality police service to the residents and visitors of the community in a professional, courteous and committed manner.”
Our mission and our goal are to provide quality policing to the residents and visitors to our great Village. 2014 has been a successful year for the Police Department. We were granted two more desperately needed positions to our Department, which will help us serve the community more efficiently. The year was also marked by the continuation of our record low-crime statistics experienced in 2013. Rockville Centre remains one of the safest communities in the Metropolitan area.
The Department maintains our New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services Accreditation Program; the only agency in Nassau County able to boast that title. This requires a strict, aggressive training program which benefits the community in that more highly trained and sophisticated members are responsible for the safety of the community and service to our residents. The Police Department remains committed to keeping Rockville Centre safe and maintaining a good quality of life for the residents…
