Al Mosiello, Police Chief
The Pelham Manor Police Department has 28 well trained professional police officers including 2 detectives, and five crossing guards under the leadership of Chief Al Mosiello. 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.
The Pelham Manor Police Department also has a D.A.R.E. Program with two D.A.R.E. officers who instruct students at the Prospect Hill, Siwanoy and Our Lady of Perpetual Help Elementary Schools. An officer also works with students of the Pelham Memorial HS and MS. This helps build rapport between the Police Department and the children of the community.
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.
Combat Auto Theft
The Pelham Manor Police Department offers the Combat Auto Theft (CAT) program to its residents. The CAT program is for those residents who do not normally operate their vehicles between the hours of 1 a.m. and 5 a.m. These vehicles are marked with a decal and the owner gives the police the authority to stop this vehicle without cause if it is being driven during the these hours. For more information call 738-1000.
School is Open
The Pelham Manor Police Department reminds all motorists to drive carefully now that school is open. This is especially important for parents dropping off and picking up children around schools. Please offer the same courtesy to other school children as you would expect for your own.
With leaf season upon us, drivers and parents need to be particularly careful. Motorists should NEVER drive through a leaf pile and parents should NEVER allow children to play or hide in leaf piles in the street.
Every residence or place of business is required to be numbered and to have its number attached to the front of the building. Building numbering is critically important in an emergency. It can save police, fire and ambulance personnel valuable time in responding to an emergency.
