Message from the Chief of Police

Welcome! On behalf of the men and women of the Binghamton Police Department, I would like to personally welcome you to our department’s website. It’s our hope that this site will provide you with a greater understanding of the services that the department provides to our community. Additionally, we will continue to work to update our web page with information that all members of the community will find useful and important.

Our website is just one way of demonstrating the sense of commitment, professionalism and dedication that the members of our department tirelessly work to achieve. We believe a critical component of our mission in making Binghamton a safer community to live, work, and raise our families in.

This website is prepared with recognition of the department’s mission, values, and organizational philosophy. All of our efforts are designed to this end; that we are always working to better serve, protect everyone who lives, works, or visits the City of Binghamton. We welcome your comments, thoughts, and observations.

The Binghamton Police Department embraces the philosophy of Community Policing in all its daily operations and functions. Community Policing is based upon a partnership between the police and the community whereby the police and the community share responsibility for identifying, reducing, eliminating and preventing problems that impact community safety and order. By working together, the police and the community can reduce the fear and incidence of crime and improve the quality of life in neighborhoods citywide.

Thank you for visiting our web page. We look forward to serving you in the future.
