On behalf of the Members and Staff of the New Hartford Police Department,
I would like to welcome you to our Internet window into our Policing services.
The New Hartford Police Department is a full service Law Enforcement organization providing essential services to approximately 24,000 residents. Because of the Commercial/Business character in certain areas of our community, the police department is responsible for providing police services for up to 100,000 additional people, depending on the time of year.
The New Hartford Police Department is divided into the following divisions to better serve our citizens:
- Police Administration
- Office of Professional Standards and Accreditation
- Technical Working Groups
- Drug Enforcement Task Force
- Forensic and Technical Services
- Training Division
- Family Services Unit
- Juvenile Aid Division
- School Resource Officer Unit
- Child Advocacy Center
- Computer Crimes Unit
The New Hartford Police Department prides itself on not just being a leader in the community, but being a part in the overall fabric of the community. We also value teamwork, honesty, integrity and family values.
I truly hope you enjoy this Internet window into the New Hartford Police Department and encourage you to contact us if we may be of service to you.
Very Truly Yours,
Chief Michael S. Inserra

Protecting Your Home
Help keep burglars out of your home or apartment by following these tips:
Windows and Doors
• Lock all outside doors and windows before you leave the house or go to bed. Even if you are going out for just a short time, make sure you lock up.
• Use a solid core or metal door for all entrance points. Other doors can be more easily kicked in or forced open.
• Install quality dead-bolt locks and strike plates on all exterior doors. Pushbutton locks on doorknobs are easy for burglars to open.
• Keep your garage door closed and locked. Do not rely on an automatic garage door opener to provide security. Also, make sure to lock any connecting door between the garage and your home.
• Change locks immediately if your keys are lost or stolen.
• When moving into a new home, have all locks changed.
• Sliding glass doors are vulnerable. In addition to keeping them locked, place a metal rod or wooden pole into the track to prevent burglars from forcing it open or lifting it off the track. Special locks are also available to provide better security.
• Use curtains on garage and basement windows.
• Make sure door hinges are on the inside.
• Most windows can be pinned for security. Drill a 3/16" hole on a slight downward slant through the inside window frame and halfway into the outside frame - place a nail in the hole to secure the window.
• Leave lights on when you go out. If you are going to be away for a length of time, connect some lamps to automatic timers to turn them on in the evening and off during the day.
• Have adequate exterior lighting, including motion-sensitive lights that alert you when someone has come on your property.
• Make sure there is good lighting around your front door and along any walkway or hallway leading to it.
• Don't allow daily deliveries of mail, newspapers or flyers build up while you are away. Arrange with the Post Office to hold your mail, or arrange for a friend or neighbor to take all items away regularly.
• Arrange for your lawn to be mowed if you are going away for an extended time.
• Trim trees and shrubs so that they do not obscure someone trying to break into your home
• Consider installing a burglar alarm system
• Never leave keys under doormats, flowerpots, or other "secret" hiding places -- burglars know where to look for hidden keys.
• Never enter your home or apartment if you come home to find a door ajar or window open for unexplained reasons. Call 911 and wait for the police to arrive.
