Serving The Town Of Rotterdam,

New York


Welcome From The Chief


On behalf of the men and women of the Rotterdam Police Department, I would like to personally welcome you to our website. 

Our Police Department continues to evolve to meet the changing needs of our community and our citizens in order to provide a safe and secure environment to live and work. Today the Rotterdam Police Department has over 75 sworn and civilian members.

Our department continues to be community oriented, encouraging citizen involvement in preventing and reducing crime. As part of our ongoing effort to increase community awareness, we offer this website to provide enhanced access to this department. This site will provide information on personal safety, protecting property, preventing crime, wanted suspects, news releases and more.

We hope you enjoy your visit to our website and find the content to be informative and useful.
