Our Asharoken Police Department was formed in 1926. Today, our department has grown to fourteen officers. The number of officers on duty per shift varies, depending on the day and time of year.
The police boat is in operation from approximately Memorial Day to Labor Day, patrolling our Asharoken waterways.
The department is supervised by the Officer-in-Charge, under the direction of the Commissioner of Police and a Deputy Commissioner.
Asharoken is a well-protected village, with a near-zero crime rate.
Contributing to this accomplishment is an aggressive program to check on houses and grounds.
The omnipresence of police patrols on village roads, 24 hours a day, adds to maintaining the highest level of highway safety,
as well as providing a visible deterrent to criminal activity.
The Department can be contacted at (631) 261-7400. Our Police also respond to 911 emergency calls.
The Northport and Eaton’s Neck Fire Departments are currently contracted to provide emergency fire
and ambulance services to the residents of our Village. The services from these two departments
are split based upon geographic boundaries, with the Eaton's Neck Fire Department covering the
Morgan Estate and the Northport Fire Department covering the rest of our Village.
Both of these Fire Departments offer professional volunteer capabilities that
include state of the art equipment, rigorous training and certification requirements,
and Advanced Life Support certified ambulance services. Advanced Life Support certification
allows the ambulance technicians to administer life saving medication and use advanced medical equipment.
Both of these departments have a large contingency of men and women that volunteer their time
and efforts to support our community. There are also agreements between all Huntington Fire Departments
to provide a ‘mutual aid’ response, where one will assist another if additional manpower or equipment is required.
