The Village of Greene Police Department was officially founded in 1967 with the appointment of its first full-time officer. That officer, who was Greene's first chief of police, was Morris "Moe" Eccleston. Moe served as Village of Greene police chief from 1967 until 1981, when he left to become the sheriff of Chenango County, where he would serve until 1991 before retiring.

Upon Moe's departure from the Greene Police Department, Chief Timothy Hagen served in the Village's top spot until 1983, when he left to become a New York State trooper.

In 1984, the Greene Police Department was run by Chief William Blake, who served from 1984 until his death in 1994. Chief Blake, during his tenure, also created a second full-time night patrolman position, which at the time was held by patrolman Edward Hitt, who had transferred from the Walton Police Department. Edward Hitt was promoted to Chief of Police in 1994, following the death of William Blake. Chief Hltt served the village until his death in 2004.

Chief of Police, Steven Dutcher, took the helm in 2004 after serving as the full-time night patrolman under Hitt for two years.  Currently there are three sworn officers on the police department's books, as well as a part-time secretary/grant writer.
