By Order of the Town Board Town of New Windsor Kelly Allegra, Town Clerk Town of New Windsor Related Articles Two New Windsor Police Officers Complete Drug Recognition Expert Training The Town of New Windsor Police Department announces the graduation of 2 Police Officers who tried out for and were accepted into the Drug Recognition Expert training. Completion of this highly competitive and lengthy 3 week course puts New Windsor at the forefront of combating driving while under the influence of drugs. Police Chief Robert Doss stated, “I am very proud of Officer Sussman and Officer Weed’s successful completion of the very challenging and difficult Drug Recognition Expert program. The deployment of these Officer’s with their knowledge, skill and expertise in the area of drugged driving detection will certainly increase the overall safety of the motorists traveling throughout the Town of New Windsor. The Police Department remains committed to keeping the roadways safe for everyone. We had 75 Driving While Intoxicated arrests in 2018 and we anticipate the numbers of impaired drivers on the roads to increase dramatically in the upcoming years because Governor Cuomo has committed to moving forward with his agenda of legalizing marihuana. The New Windsor Police Department intends to stay ahead of this problem and that is why we now employ 2 of the 7 DRE trained Police Officers in all of Orange County.” New Windsor Police install new pole mounted speed limit sign Town Police & Highway Department members were on Dean Hill Road recently to talk to some area residents about the installation of a new pole mounted electronic speed limit sign. Town residents Sabrina Oliveri and Kevin Shader had written a letter to the Town about their concerns of speeding cars on Dean Hill Road and requested a sign of this type be installed to help slow vehicles down. Electronic speed limit signs of this type are portable and are used to alert motorists of their speed if they are traveling above the posted limit. The Police Department determined that Dean Hill Road would be a suitable location for the sign to be displayed. The Highway Department installed the sign post and the sign last week. New Windsor Police Chief Robert Doss stated, “I think this is an excellent example of how we all can work together to get things done. Traffic safety in the town is extremely important to us and getting cars to slow down in residential areas like Dean Hill Road is a priority. Motorists have to realize that there are people walking their dogs, people exercising and kids playing in these areas and they need to be aware of their speed and slow down for everyone’s safety.” If you know of a road that you think would benefit from the installation of one of the signs, please contact Sgt. William Ruger. He can be contacted at (845) 565-7000 or at [email protected] The Police Department recently obtained two of these electronic speed signs using grant funding from The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant. This grant is federally funded and is used for criminal justice programs at the state and local levels. The signs are portable and can be easily moved from location to location depending on need.

New Windsor Police Chief Graduates Prestigious FBI National Academy The Town of New Windsor Police Department is proud to announce that Chief Robert L. Doss has recently graduated from the 277th Session of the prestigious FBI National Academy. The 277th Session of the National Academy consisted of 256 men and women from all 50 states and 35 different countries. The FBI National Academy is our nation’s premier law enforcement leadership training institution that less than 1 percent of all Law Enforcement Officers in the United States ever get invited to attend. The National Academy is held at the FBI Training Academy in Quantico Virginia, the same facility where the FBI trains its new special agents and intelligence analysts. The 10-week National Academy program provides coursework in intelligence theory, terrorism and terrorist mindsets, management science, law, behavioral science, law enforcement communication, and forensic science. It serves to improve the administration of justice in police departments and agencies at home and abroad and to raise law enforcement standards, knowledge, and cooperation worldwide. National Academy students earn undergraduate and graduate credits from the University of Virginia, which accredits many of the courses offered. While FBI Director Christopher Wray delivered the keynote remarks at the graduation ceremony, FBI Academy instructors, special agents and other staff with advanced degrees provide the training. Chief Doss is a 22-year member of the New Windsor Police Department who worked his way up through the ranks to become Chief of Police in 2018. ****Pictured in the photo is FBI Director Christopher Wray (L) and Chief Robert Doss (R)**** Police Arrest Man in Connection to Thefts from Motor Vehicles Release Date – August 28, 2020: The Town of New Windsor Police Department arrested a man today in connection to stealing property out of parked cars in the Town of New Windsor.

Barilla of New Paltz, NY and charged him with Grand Larceny, 4th degree (E-Felony) and two counts of Petit Larceny (A-Misdemeanor).
