Chief’s Welcome

Chief Ronald J. Spero Jr.

As the Chief of Police, I join with the members of  the Town of Poughkeepsie Police Department in welcoming you to our website. The dedicated men and women who serve as Town of Poughkeepsie Police Officers take great pride in providing you, our citizens, with the highest level of police services available. I encourage you to take the time to browse our website so that you may fully appreciate the quality level of services we provide.

Through the hard work of all our police officers and support staff, as well as the support of our Town Administration and Town Board, we have earned the recognition of being one of the most technologically advanced, well equipped, and professionally trained police departments in New York State.

Our implementation of innovative programs such as the Community Policing Officer, School Resource Officer, Field Intelligence Officer, Neighborhood Watch Program, and College Intern Program, have assisted us in serving our business and residential community. We are fortunate to have ongoing partnerships with Federal, State and local law enforcement agencies, elected representatives, and support service agencies.

The Town of Poughkeepsie is a town with a growing, diverse, and vibrant population that is well known as a great place to raise a family. We take great pride in helping to make our town a safe place to live, work and visit.

Chief Ronald J. Spero Jr.
