Message From the Chief

As the 13th Chief of Police in the departments’ storied history it is my honor to serve the citizens of the Village of Solvay. 

As the seasons begin to change please remember to take all necessary safety measures to ensure your families’ safety.  When you are not at home, close windows to prevent access points for burglars to gain entry to your residence and make sure you lock your car doors.  Also remember to close your garage doors as that can be another access point.  Last but not least, DO NOT LEAVE ANY KEYS TO YOUR HOME OR VEHICLE IN THE VEHICLE.  Many report that their car has been stolen, when it could have been avoided by removing the keys. 

The members of Solvay Police Department are dedicated to serve and protect, providing the highest level of service to our community and its citizens.  Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns.
