Holiday Weekend Police Activity

Between 11pm on Friday June 17, 2022- through 11pm on Monday June 20, 2022, the Old Westbury Police Department handled 60 calls for service.  A sample of some of the calls include 7 traffic accidents, 2 aided cases, 1 non-violent mental aided, 2 missing person calls, 1 burglary and an attempted burglary. The burglary was at an unoccupied home and discovered after the homeowner arrived home from a weekend trip.  There was no alarm set or functioning video surveillance at the home.  In the attempted burglary, the would-be burglars did shatter glass and were spooked by the homeowner who was home at the time.  The subjects ran off without entering the house and the homeowner did not see or make contact with any subjects. These events are actively being investigated by the Old Westbury Police Detective Bureau.   

 As a reminder if you have an alarm system, please be sure it is working properly and set it even when at home.  If you have security cameras, please check that they are positioned correctly and recording.  It is recommended that you have offsite or cloud-based video storage if possible.  

The Old Westbury Police Department is also implementing a video surveillance camera registration program.  This program is completely voluntarily. The program would allow the police department to know where there are cameras in the village, what areas they capture and would assist in investigating incidents.  Having the camera locations and who to contact, helps save valuable time and resources.  See attached  form to register or email Detective Brown for further details.    /DocumentCenter/View/957

Additionally, the police department maintains a vacant house list.  Residents call the Old Westbury Police Headquarters 516-626-0200 to inform the police department that they will be away.  The desk officer will take down some brief details and enter it into our dispatch system.  This will provide valuable information to officers should they respond to that location for an alarm or other call by knowing in advance  that the house  has been reported unoccupied.  

 See additional burglary prevention tips attached here.    /DocumentCenter/View/958

 Please report any suspicious activity without delay, to the Old Westbury Police Department

516-626-0200 or call 911 if an emergency.
