Yonkers Police Fourth Police Precinct
The Fourth Precinct is located at 53 Shonnard Place and encompasses the northwest quadrant of the city of Yonkers. Located within its boundaries are in excess of 57,000 residents. The precinct’s goal is to provide professional service, reduce crime, foster a high quality of life for its residents, and provide a good working relationship with the community.
The Fourth Precinct is divided into six patrol sectors. Supplementing motorized patrol are five regularly staffed foot posts, and three posts patrolled by officers on bicycles. These posts are augmented by the department’s Housing Unit which patrols the city’s housing projects during peak time periods. The three largest housing projects, Emmett Burke Gardens, Cottage Gardens, and the Schlobohm apartments are located within the 4th precinct.

Providing a safe and secure community can be accomplished best when the community is partnered with the police department. The Yonkers Police Department encourages open dialog with the community we serve. This dialog exchange helps the police department understand your concerns and assist us in deploying our resources to address these issues. It also offers us the opportunity to explain measures we are taking to achieve a safe and secure community. The command staff of the 4th precinct regularly meets members of the Hudson River Community Association, The Lake Ave Merchants Association, and The Yonkers Downtown/Waterfront Business Improvement District. The Fourth Precinct Community Council holds it regularly scheduled monthly meetings on the third Wednesday of each month. Anyone living or working in the area is welcome to attend and discuss policing issues of interest. Mr. Dominic Sacchetti is the president. Other civic groups, tenant associations or neighborhood groups wishing to have a representative from the 4th Precinct attend their meeting and discuss concerns should contact the 4th Precinct at 914-377-7401.
