Programs and activities
NYS Opioid Overdose Prevention: Officers who are trained are provided life-saving Narcan kits to carry while on patrol and assist with administering if needed. Patrols are sometimes first on scene before EMS and can and have assisted in saving lives.
Body Cameras: The Village of Greene was one of the first police departments in Chenango County to deploy the use of body cameras. Officers are required to use body cameras for interactions with the public while on patrol.
TASER Devices: Officers are equipped with a less than lethal electronic control device while on patrol. This provides another option when dealing with violent, or potentially violent individuals, before having to resort to the use of lethal force.
Prescription drug “Take Back” Program: The Village of Greene Police are partnered with the Chenango County Sheriff’s Office in the National “Take Back” Initiative. The purpose is to help prevent prescription drug diversion, a leading source of illicit prescription drug sales in the US. The initiative also helps prevent unused drugs from entering the ground water and municipal water supplies. Unused/unneeded prescription medication can be dropped off at the Village of Greene Police Department at 49 Genesee street during normal business hours or by contacting the on-duty officer at 607-656-8501.
Village Property Checks: Officer’s conduct after hours property checks of businesses and public buildings and grounds in an effort to deter illegal activity and/or aid efforts to investigate and prosecute those responsible for such illegal activity.
Community Policing: Officers are available and visible during events sponsored by local not for profit groups. Examples include the Memorial Day parade, the Labor Day picnic, Applefest, the Craft Fair, Car shows along with school dances and sporting events. Officers also conduct regular school checks and do walkthroughs to ensure the locations are secure.
We urge you to click on the link for more information about our plan going forward to comply with the order. Please note that this survey is regarding the Village of Greene Police and not the State Police or the Chenango County Sheriff’s Office. Please compete the survey by February 8th, 2021.
