    Police Dept.
          When should I call the Greenburgh Police Department?
You should call the Police Department when you have an emergency, a non-emergency concerning a possible violation of local or state law, a suspicious condition, a motor vehicle accident or an animal complaint.


          What is a police report?
Very simply, a police report is a written record prepared by a police officer documenting what happened, or allegedly happened, during a specific incident.


          How can I get a copy of my police report?
Two ways: You can come to the Records Unit at Headquarters Monday through Friday from 9am to 5 pm, or you can mail us a request with a self addressed stamped envelope.


          If my name is on a police report, do I have a "Record"?
No. A police report simply documents an incident which has occurred. It's purpose is not to assign blame. A person acquires a criminal record after having been arrested and convicted of an offense.


          Is crime up or down in Greenburgh?
Good question. Part I offenses (the seven serious offenses as defined by the FBI) have generally been on a down trend over the past few years in Greenburgh. Part II offenses (all other offenses) have fluctuated, without an obvious a trend. Overall incidents have steadily gone up over the past several years. Click here to see recent Statistics.
