Trooper Arp was married to his wife Margie for 53 years, raising 4 boys who all became police officers currently serving the residents of Greene County. Trooper Arp was a well respected member of law enforcement to his peers and community members alike. Please keep him and his family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they are the children of God.”

*Additional Update*: The puppy has been temporarily placed in a loving foster home which could turn out to be a permanent placement.

Last night, 8/5/2017 at approximately 11:00pm, a dog was lost at the Coxsackie Boat Launch shortly after the festival. The dog was walking on the steel ledge of the bulk head near the southern most boat dock when it lost it's footing and fell into the river. The owner entered the water and made a gallant attempt to save his pet but to no avail. After rescue efforts by both the Coxsackie Police Department, the Coxsackie Fire Company and a host of bystanders on land and on boat were exhausted, the search was called off. Soon after, barking could be heard from the Columbia County side of the river in the area of Ferry Road, Newton Hook parking area. The Coxsackie Police Department requested the assistance of the Columbia County Sheriff's Office to check the area in question. A thorough search of the area revealed no siting of the dog. The dog could be in Greene County, but could also be in the area of Stuyvesant in Columbia County as well. If anyone finds a black and white poodle/bichon mix by the name of "Lucy", with a collar and a harness please call the Coxsackie Police Department 731-8121/731-8122. Please share this post. Thank you.

Due to the impending snowstorm/blizzard, the Coxsackie Police Department urges all Village residences and neighbors, if you do not have to work or travel, please stay home. Furthermore, because of the rate of snowfall, it will be difficult for municipal highway departments to keep up with clearing of roadways. So please do not travel if you do not have to. The Coxsackie Police Department, along with the Mayor's office takes the safety of every Village resident and visitor serious and would like to remind all that if you need police assistance to contact 518-731-8121/8122 or simply dial 911.

On Monday January 16, 2017 a bicycle was placed in the westbound lane of Mansion Street, west of Lawrence Avenue, beneath the CSX train overpass. As a result, a Coxsackie Police Department patrol vehicle was passing by, en-route to a suspicious person call, when it struck the bicycle. Luckily, the responding officer was not injured however, damage was sustained to the undercarriage of the patrol vehicle. Two individuals were scene fleeing the area on foot and were unable to be apprehended. UPDATE: Due to diligent police work on behalf of Sergeant Gary Waters, 2 arrests have been made. Due to their age, names can not not be released. They have been issued summons to appear in Greene County Family Court at a later date and restitution will be sought. Thank you to all involved in assisting the Coxsackie Police Department with this investigation.

We are at the beginning stages of the first snow storm of the season. With that in mind, we ask that you drive slow and be cautious, and give yourself enough time to get to your destination. We also ask that you take that extra step and check in on your neighbors who may be elderly or home bound, to make sure they are ok and may need assistance. Also, keep your furry friends in mind and bring them inside during extreme cold and heavy snow conditions. Thank you!!!

From our family to yours......Merry Christmas!!

The Coxsackie Police Department wishes each and everyone of you a happy, healthy and safe Thanksgiving!
