Your Town of Pound Ridge Police Department

The Official Site of the Town of Pound Ridge New York


Welcome to the Town of Pound Ridge Police Department web site. It is my hope that we have set up this site in a manner that will be both informative and helpful to you.

A police department can never be a success if it does not embrace the needs and desires of its community and review those needs on a regular basis.  As a taxpayer or user of the services offered by the Town of Pound Ridge Police Department you are our largest asset in the fight to prevent crimes of opportunity or misguided personal desire. As we embark on our primary mission of providing for the peace and security for the greater community of Pound Ridge , we hope that you will continue to support our efforts by contacting the police department when you believe a crime has been or may be committed.  programs such as Neighborhood Watch continue to work in forming strong community bonds and allow neighbor to watch out for neighbor.

This web site reflects one way that the Town of Pound Ridge Police Department is attempting to provide our residents and those that surround the Town of Pound Ridge with important information.  We will change information from time to time. If you have any suggestions or information you would like to share, call Chief Ryan at (914) 764-0862 or E-mail us at the address indicated below. We hope you enjoy your visit.
