Message from Deputy Chief Santiago Cabrera :

Hello, on behalf of the West New York Police Department welcome to our website. Please allow me to take a moment to let you know that the men and women of the department are working hard to provide the service and professionalism West New York residents deserve.  We are here for you and, as always, your safety is our primary goal.  We are excited to launch this website and use it as a tool to improve communication with you, so please let us know how we can better serve you.  Thank you.

The West New York Police Department is now using body worn cameras. Officers are trained to perform their duties and assignments with Body Worn Cameras which will capture interactions with our residents.  The West New York Police Department believes this provides several benefits to our officers and the public we serve.  Some of these benefits include transparency in our service to the community, quicker resolution of complaints, corroborating evidence of crimes and offenses, and training opportunities to improve our officers’ performance.   View Policy and additional information.
