Emergency Medical Services (EMS)

The Greenburgh Police Department is unique in that it is one of the few police agencies to supply emergency medical services as well law enforcement services to its constituents. The department has been providing medical treatment/transport since the early 1950s.

Level 4 Paramedic Care

In 1980, the department sent its first officers to paramedic school at Jacobi Hospital located in the Bronx, New York. With their successful completion of the program, the Greenburgh Police Department became the first service in Westchester County to provide level 4 Paramedic care to its community.
