on behalf of all the members of the Red Hook Police Department. We are very
proud to have been selected to serve our Red Hook community. We recognize the
enormous trust and responsibility that has been placed in our hands and we
strive to serve with the upmost degree of courtesy, professionalism, and
We are dedicated toward providing police
services in and for our community not as passive responders, but instead as
community members that are invested in the quality of life in Red Hook. Our
entire operational and leadership philosophy centers on the community policing
style of providing services.
The community policing approach differs from the tradition policing model in
that community policing focuses resources proactively on quality of life
concerns and prevention strategies as opposed to reactively to reports of crimes
and other disturbances already in progress.
The Red Hook Police Department is located in Northern Dutchess County in the
village center operating out of the Red Hook Village Hall,
7467 South Broadway,
which is the home of our local village government.
The police department operates primarily
under the auspices of the Village of Red Hook and is proud to additionally serve
the local government entities of the Town of Red Hook, and the Red Hook Central
School District by way of contracted police and public safety services with the
Village of Red Hook.
