Fourth Precinct

Welcome to the Suffolk County Police Department's new and improved website. The mission of the Suffolk County Police Department is to protect and serve all residents of this great County. Our main objective is to prevent and solve crimes occurring in our jurisdiction, and to empower communities to ensure that their neighborhoods are safe and enjoyable places to live, work and raise a family. To these ends, the Suffolk County Police Department has implemented numerous strategies to reduce crime to its lowest recorded level since we began collecting reliable crime statistics in 1975. We have made significant investments in our intelligence-led policing model and community policing strategies, and are collaborating with all of our law enforcement partners in the region. On behalf of the hard working members of the Suffolk County Police Department, I urge you to get involved. There are a number of different ways in which you can make a difference in your community. For example, you can start a neighborhood watch; if you are a business owner, a clergy member or a civic leader, please join our new public-private partnership called SCPD Shield by visiting our website By joining, you will receive extremely useful information about ways in which you can reduce the likelihood of being a victim of a crime. We also have anonymous hotlines, in partnership with the Suffolk County Crimestoppers, that you can call to provide tips regarding criminal activity. If you are aware of drug dealing in your neighborhood, please report it to (631) 852-NARC; you can remain anonymous, and receive cash rewards for tips that lead to arrests. For all other crime tips, please call 1(800) 220-TIPS. You can also contact us by email at SCPD 4th Precinct.
