Cairo Police Department News


May 10th, 2018 Four Cairo kids did a great job after a naked stranger entered and remained in their residence. Per Sgt Busch " Fortunately we were able to respond quickly and secure the scene, this incident could have quickly turned into a much worse situation, the entire incident was handled with nobody getting hurt. We are still investigating a mental health aspect to this so we cannot release names at this time. The fact that Police arrived first was key to preventing a much worse outcome. I am proud of the Officers actions at the scene. The kids were terrified and still managed to call 911 and provide information to the trained dispatchers. A Sheriffs Deputy raced to the scene to assist Cairo Police and I saw the Deputy hand a stuffed animal to a child before he cleared. It is a good feeling when we arrive and realize that kids were desperately counting us to get there fast, and we did not let them down. We also understand that any parent would be emotional when they get word that a naked stranger entered their house with their kids. Good job to the Cairo Officers, the Greene County Sheriffs Deputy, the 911 dispatchers, and the kids" At about 4 PM Cairo Police responded to a 911 call reporting a naked man in a residence. Police arrived to a little boy yelling for the Police. Cairo Police discovered a naked man in the residence who was a stranger to the four kids between the ages of 7 and 13 years old. Other kids had locked themselves in a back bedroom after calling 911. The suspect was discovered to be holding stolen items in his hands from another building on the road. The suspect was not known to any of the residents. Cairo Police charged the suspect, a Greenville man, with Felony Burglary, criminal trespass 2nd degree, exposure of person, 3 counts of petit larceny, and 4 counts of endangering the welfare of a child. Police are still investigating the incident, no further information released at this time.

05/06/18 IRAS (Initial Response to Active Shooter) training completed. Eight Cairo Police Officers attended three full days of training Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at three different locations, that included numerous scenarios that were both mentally and physically challenging. Training of Law Enforcement is a commitment that continues throughout the career and never stops. It is a commitment by each Officer and the Agency that each Officer is employed. Our Cairo Town Board was also supportive of Cairo Officers attending this training. This course was instructed by instructors who are certified to instruct the course. Cairo Officers who completed the training for DCJS certification include Officers, Clevenstine, Saad, Rogers, Clark, Plank, Yates, Orso, and Sgt Busch. Certification and training are paramount in todays world for everything. The training was initiated by Durham PD who coordinated with Delhi PD. Thank you Captain Small of Delhi PD for the intense and exhausting training. Officers do not only walk away with certification but the Captain made sure that we earned the certification and learned from it, and he also made sure that nobody was injured during the training. Attendees and Instructors came from, Durham PD, Delhi PD, Windham PD, Fallsburg PD, NYS University Police, NYS DMV, NYS Racing Authority, Nassau County, Delaware County, Hamden, Roxbury, etc. Cairo Police would like to say THANK YOU to Durham PD for initiating the training, and to the many instructors from many agencies for the professional and legitimate training. We are looking forward to future trainings with the same intensity, and the same passion from certified instructors who make sure that the training is no joke, safe, and is performed correctly. We shared a few photos but due to intensity and high safety standards we had minimal down time and opportunity for photos.

May 2nd, 2018 Thank you very much CATSKILL PD, Lt. FRASCELLO, and instructor ZIMMERMAN for inviting Cairo Police to the Naloxone/Narcan DCJS Law Enforcement certification. We also obtained additional kits at the training. Cairo Officers have received basic training in the past to be able to administer Narcan and we have administered Narcan in the town. We get the exposure of just about every nature of call that we can think of in Cairo, and this epidemic is not going away anytime soon. Thank You

Quinn at The Greene County Sheriffs Office for coordinating with local PDs for the event. The next Drug Take Back Event will be in October.

A few photos to share, As usual with warmer weather, complaints, walk ins, and calls directly to the Cairo Police Department increase to the point that we steadily sift through the work load by priority. We would like to start off the warmer season by saying thank you to the Town and the Town Board for the new 575, a 2018 Ford Explorer. Safety is a priority and our patrol fleet is safe and up to date. Thank You for the support. Also, April 27th Cairo Police joined many other agencies on Blue Friday at R C Lacy Ford in Catskill.

April 3rd 2018, As the community is aware 2 adults and 3 children of the community have lost their lives in a fire on April 2nd. First and foremost our thoughts are with the Mammano family during this tragedy. Cairo Police interact with children of the community on a daily basis at the Cairo Elementary School, and as with the rest of the community we are deeply saddened by this tragedy. The Cairo Durham School District has prepared to deal with this tragedy especially when the children arrive back from break, school staff including Superintendant Taibi and assistant principal Czech attended the vigil last night. They also have resources posted on the Cairo Durham School web page. We would like to add that we are not counselors, but keep in mind that as adults, we understand why we feel the way that we do about this, but this is all new to some children. Please keep in mind when speaking to your children, some of them will be returning to a few classrooms next week to an empty seat in their classroom, and to teachers that have lost those students.
