The Quogue Village Police Department is composed of a Chief of Police, a Lieutenant who acts as the Department’s Executive Officer, a Detective, three Sergeants and seven police officers. Officers are on duty 24 hours per day, every day of the year. The majority of Quogue officers are emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and the remaining officers have emergency training in CPR and first aid. Department patrol vehicles carry emergency medical equipment for use when they are the initial responders to the scene of a medical emergency. In addition to patrolling the streets in Quogue, the Department also maintains a well-equipped marine vessel that patrols the waterways within the Village and its adjacent bays. During the summer season the Department also utilizes a Wave Runner for access to shallow waterways and utilizes four wheel drive vehicles for those situations requiring them.

The Department holds the distinction of being an accredited law enforcement agency that has met or exceeded the stringent requirements as outlined by the New York State Accreditation Standards. This honor is held by less than 22 % of the police departments within the State and is awarded only after the department successfully passes a rigorous examination of its policies, procedures and practices. The most recent renewal of the Department’s accreditation status was in 2014.

Emergency dispatch (911 calls) for the Department is handled through the Town of Southampton emergency dispatch unit. Should a citizen have a non-emergency situation, he or she may call the Department’s non-emergency number (631-653-4791) and leave a recorded message if no one is in the building or call the non-emergency number (631-728-3400) at the Southampton Town Police dispatch unit and request to have a Quogue Village Police Officer call at the number provided. Whichever method a citizen uses, an Officer will respond promptly after receipt of the message.

If a citizen has a question or concern and prefers to send it via email, the message can be sent to jvargas@villageofquogueny.gov. The information will be reviewed and forwarded to the appropriate unit or staff member for follow-up.
