CHIEF’S MESSAGE

I would personally like to welcome to the Brookhaven Police Department webpage. Further information regarding our Department and related useful links and information can be located on our Departmental webpage www.brookhavenpolice.com. My perspective on police leadership is based on the recognition that long term, sustainable trust and success with the community is essential. This trust and can only be attained through an actual positive working relationship with the community. We must be partners to create and maintain the lowest number of crime incidents possible, thus increasing the level of overall satisfaction within the community. Engagement with the community by officers is essential to building this trust. This is facilitated by having officers out of their police vehicles, walking beats when feasible and having positive interactions with those we serve and maintaining a professional appearance and demeanor at all times.

My mantra regarding crime is that ‘Everything Matters.’ No incident should ever be shunned and regarded as insignificant because it mattered enough for someone to call the police for help. Our calling is rooted in customer satisfaction. Thus, we will strive to perform optimally in this aspect in each and every resident, business and visitor encounter.

Chief Matt Kurten
