The Westchester County Department of Public Safety is committed to protecting the safety and security of all who live and work in our county or come here to visit.

The department is vigilant in patrolling county parkways and protecting county properties, including Westchester’s vast parks system and key facilities such as the Westchester County Airport, the Westchester County Center and the county office building. In addition, it conducts municipal patrol operations in Mount Kisco and Cortlandt and has School Resource officers assigned to schools in Cortlandt, Somers and North Salem.

We serve as an ever-present resource for local law-enforcement in Westchester. Through our Forensic Investigation Unit, for example, county police experts in ballistics, latent prints, crime scene processing and digital evidence examination assist local police with hundreds of cases each year. The resources of the Special Operations Division -- such as the Aviation Unit, Bomb Squad and Special Response Team -- are always available upon request to local police agencies.

The Digital Evidence Section conducts examinations of computers, cellular telephones, electronic storage devices and other items for local and federal law enforcement agencies. It is accredited by the NYS Commission on Forensic Science and the American Society of Crime Laboratory Directors

In addition, the Department of Public Safety, also known as the Westchester County Police Department, remains at the forefront in protecting our citizens and critical infrastructure from acts of domestic and international terrorism.
