Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano swore in the Nassau County Police Department’s newest promotes at a ceremony held in Mineola. Nassau has seen crime drop by 27% since 2009, including a 50% decrease in residential burglaries, a 46% reduction in stolen vehicles, and a 43% decrease in robberies. Nassau County is reporting the lowest crime rate in its history since 1966 - the year that crime statistics were first recorded. In 2016, major crime dropped 8.71% across all Nassau County Police Department (NCPD) precincts, continuing a downward trend that began in 2010.
“It was a great honor to promote these individuals as they have done an outstanding job in protecting and serving the people of Nassau County,” said County Executive Mangano. “I anticipate under the leadership of Acting Police Commissioner Thomas Krumpter, these recently promoted sworn members will help Nassau County remain one of the safest counties in the nation.”
