About the Irvington Police Department

General Information:

The Irvington Police Department, headed by Chief Frank Pignatelli, consists of 23 full time officers and 3 civilian employees. The department is responsible for 24 hour a day police protection and services.

The police department also has the responsibility of dispatching fire and emergency medical service equipment and personnel.  The department was previously certified by New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services, Law Enforcement Accreditation Council, as one of 50 New York State Police Departments to be awarded accreditation. A comprehensive procedures manual was written during the accreditation process, implemented and is reviewed and updated annually. We are currently in the process of attaining this standard once again.

Aside from being  a professional police agency, the department participates in many law enforcement sponsored programs including Stop DWI and Seat-Belt education and enforcement.  The department also hosts various community programs throughout the year.

Irvington is a growing community and although recently listed as one of the 80 safest communities to live in, it does encounter those types of crimes associated with a community in close proximity to a large metropolitan area.
