We mourn the loss of life this Easter in Sri Lanka by way of a series of attacks on Churches and Hotels.
Please know that our churches; along with our synagogues and mosques, are not only being monitored but also being visited by our Members, not only today but every day of the year.
IF YOU SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING. Call 911 or 914-665–2500.
Today starts National Safety Telecommunicators Week. We like to call our Safety Telecommunicators Emergency Service Dispatchers and Communications Specialists.
They are literally our lifeline out on the street, connecting us to the emergency caller, to the community, to each other.
We appreciate you all not only this week, but every single day.
Who's smiling now?
It sure isn't the 11 drug dealers who were peddling heroin in Mount Vernon and environs with a red smiley face stamped on their envelopes.
The Narcotics Units of the Mount Vernon PD and Westchester County PD (@wcpdny) and Westchester County District Attorney's Investigators executed five search warrants this morning in the City of Mount Vernon and the Bronx. The search warrants were the result of a seven-month investigation into heroin trafficking and distribution.
A total of 12 sealed indictments resulted from the investigation. Ten suspects were taken into custody today and the 11th was already in the county jail. One suspect remains at large - for now.
The search warrant executions resulted in the seizure of approximately two kilograms of heroin, $25,000 dollars in cash and a loaded handgun.
Awesome job by all the detectives, investigators and prosecutors involved in this investigation. It's great to know this poison, and these suspects, are off our streets. (Via @wcpdny)
Yesterday we held another graduation of our Citizen’s Police Academy. We thank the Members of the community for taking time out of their busy lives to find out what we do and for helping us build stronger ties to the community we serve.
We will announce the registration period for our next Citizen’s Police Academy.
