Welcome, 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 integrity.
     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.

Location: 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.
