The mission of the Glen Rock Police Department is to prevent crime, enforce the law and support quality public safety by delivering respectful, professional and dependable police services.

On behalf of the men and women of the Glen Rock Police Department, I would like to welcome you to the Glen Rock Police Department’s World Wide Web site.

A tradition of professional, efficient, and courteous service to the community has been the hallmark of the Glen Rock Police Department since its inception in 1918. With the implementation of the Department’s Web site, we hope to enhance the public’s knowledge of the police department’s operations and to make the department a more open and accessible entity.

We invite you to browse through all of the police department’s divisions, read through the frequently asked questions and special programs section in an effort to acquaint yourself with your police department. We plan on constantly updating and improving this site, so please visit us often. You will also notice that we have provided you with the opportunity to communicate with the many divisions of the department, or me, using e-mail. Please feel free to express any questions or concerns you may have.

As we move into the twenty-first century, the Glen Rock Police Department, while not forgetting the traditions of the past, is taking innovative strides in technology to stay current with the concerns of the community it serves.
