Welcome!  Thank you for visiting the Newark Police Department website.  We believe you will enjoy touring our user-friendly, convenient, and informative site.  It is one additional method which allows us to communicate with the members of our local community.

The Newark Police Department's mission is to reduce crime and enhance the quality of life in the Village of Newark.  In order for us to accomplish this mission, we recognize the need to effectively and efficiently communicate with those that we serve.

Our website allows us the opportunity to provide extensive information to a wide array of uses with varying interests and needs.  It also allows users who navigate our site to familiarize themselves with our many programs, services, and crime prevention information.  By viewing our site, it allows those who live, visit, and do business in the Village of Newark to become an active partner with the Newark Police Department in combating crime and enhancing the quality of life in our community.

Our site allows our community members to become informed about their police department and provides a tool that allows them to inform us about concerns, problems,  and relevant information that may result in our preventing criminal activity, solving crimes and addressing issues that may improve the quality of life in your neighborhood.

As Newark continues to grow and develop, the Newark Police Department will provide the highest levels of professional policing services to all those who live and visit here.  We look forward to working with you to make Newark the safest community in upstate New York.  If you have a questions or concern, please e-mail me at jthomson@newarkpd.net .
