Update from Supervisor Meyers: NWPD Bike Patrol, Dog Park & New K9 Officer From Supervisor Meyers: We are introducing a few new additions for New Windsor that have been in planning stages for a couple of months. Beginning tomorrow, July 6, a police bicycle patrol will begin in our housing developments. We have had six of our officers in training for this detail. I think it is important for our officers to interact with our residents on a regular basis. My belief is that this type of patrol will be helpful in accomplishing that goal. The officers assigned to this detail are anxious to get started. There is a schedule of the dates and locations of these patrols and all our housing developments are included. Lieutenant Fred Fayo will provide oversight of this unit. The bikes will be rack mounted on a marked police vehicle and the officer will determine when and how long to patrol on the bike. I have heard repeatedly from our residents that they do not know any of the police officers, and I hope that this will create positive interaction for our residents with our officers. I have been discussing a town dog park for New Windsor for a number of weeks and the park is now a reality. The park is located at our San G Park on Union Ave across from Heritage school. There are two sections for different size dogs and both have shade structures and water bowl filling stations. The gate key required for use of the dog park will be available at the town clerk’s office starting on Thursday, July 8. In addition, as of this past Friday, we have a new K-9 unit assigned to our police patrol unit. Officer Joe Bell and his partner Duke graduated after months of training and will now be on patrol helping to keep New Windsor a safe place for all of us.
