The big news from the Stony Point Police Department is the $56,000 in grant funding we recently received! The grant, secured in cooperation with our former NYS Senator James Skoufis, enabled the department to purchase a new police vehicle and two new radar speed signs for our school zones. One sign was installed by Farley Elementary School (coming eastbound on Route 210), and the second is located on southbound Jay Street by Stony Point Elementary School. We’re happy to be able to provide this additional speed protection near our schools in order to keep children and their families safe. The department is also in the process of adding a new officer to our ranks to replace Mike Heath, who is now the Stony Point School Resource Officer. This is a great move for Mike and our whole community, and we’re proud to watch him thrive in his new role. We are looking to hire a Spanish-speaking officer and the hire will come at no additional cost to the county because Mike’s position is funded by the school district.
As always, we are focused on the safety of all Stony Point residents and are here to serve you!
