Welcome to the New Haven Police Department's website!
We are dedicated to ensuring a safe and inclusive environment throughout the city of New Haven by reinitiating and revitalizing its community-based policing strategies throughout each of the city's neighborhoods.
These strategies are built upon our commitment to professionalism, fairness, integrity and community partnerships, and this web site will be used to facilitate increased collaboration and communication between the New Haven Police Department and our community. The New Haven Police Department strives to reduce crime, increase safety, and create solutions to challenges affecting each of our city's diverse districts.
This web site is a great resource for anyone seeking information on the New Haven Police Departmentís current initiatives and community efforts, as well as contact information, press releases, recruitment information and crime statistics.
This site will be updated regularly to provide accurate and timely information to the community, and in order to ensure its effectiveness, we need to hear from you as to what you would like to see, as we continue to develop its content.
On behalf of the New Haven Police Department, thank you for visiting.
