All employees of the Red Hook Police Department recognize that no law enforcement agency can operate at its maximum potential without supportive input from the citizens it serves.

We operate under the principle that the actions or inactions of all employees either directly or indirectly affect the quality of police services provided to the community, and the public’s perception of our efforts. Throughout the course of a day, opportunities for quality interaction between the public and members of this agency occur. Employees are expected to interact with the public in a professional, respectful, and productive manner.
