The Second Police Precinct is located at 441 Central Park Avenue in the southeast section of the city. Staffed by 74 sworn police officers – including Commanding Officer Captain, three lieutenants, eight sergeants and 62 patrol officers – the precinct maintains an area of approximately five square miles.
The environs of the 2nd Precinct, home to more than 65,000 residents, is also home to a multitude of retail and entertainment establishments, including the ultra-modern Cross County Shopping Center (which will complete a $330 million renovation in 2012), the Empire City Casino, and the bustling McLean Avenue and Yonkers Avenue business corridors.
Festivities abound in the precinct’s jurisdiction as well, as the Annual Yonkers Columbus Day Parade, the McLean Avenue St. Patrick’s Day Parade and the McLean Avenue Street Festival all fill the neighborhoods with special celebrations.
The 2nd Precinct is also centrally located in relation to the city’s many travel arteries, with proximity to the NYS Thruway, the Cross County Parkway, the Bronx River Parkway and the Saw Mill River Parkway. The Hillview Reservoir also sits within the boundaries of the precinct, as does Sarah Lawrence College which is nationally recognized as one of the premier centers of higher learning.
The men and women of the 2nd Precinct strive, through diligent patrol and a forward-thinking mindset toward public safety, to insure an exalted quality of life for residents, merchants and visitors alike.

The Council meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month.
