The Pelham Manor Police Department has 27 well trained professional police officers including 1 detective, and five crossing guards. If an emergency should arise, residents can be assured of a quick response by the police department. The average police response time to a call is under 2 minutes.
Every patrol car is equipped with an oxygen unit and six cars are equipped with portable defibrillators. All officers are certified in CPR through the American Red Cross, and certified by the American Heart Association in the use of defibrillators. Each officer is thoroughly trained in all phases of first aid and attend frequent refresher courses.
We urge our residents to play an active role in crime prevention by telephoning our police immediately upon your observing any type of suspicious activity or behavior. Even if your call should be unfounded, our police would rather respond to all such calls than allow a crime to occur.
