Message from the Chief

-A A +A

On behalf of the Town of New Paltz Police Department, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for visiting our website. It is my pleasure to serve you as the Chief of Police. I take great pride in working with such fine men and women within our department. You will find that our employees are dedicated, courteous, well trained and an enthusiastic group of professionals who take pride in their work. They are ready to work with you to make your home, your workplace and this community an even better place to live.

The cooperative working relationship between police and the people we serve is the strongest it has ever been. I believe there is a shared responsibility between our police and our community to continue improving the quality of life for the citizens of New Paltz. We are dedicated to preventing crime and disorder through the application of community based problem solving efforts. No police department can be successful without engaged citizens. This website provides links that will arm you with information to join us in accomplishing our mission.

I invite you to contact me through this website and share your thoughts. Together we will continue making the Town and Village of New Paltz what it has become, "A great place to visit and live."

Joseph A. Snyder
Chief of Police
