Businesses located within the City of Poughkeepsie can register their emergency contact information with the Police & Fire Departments. Contact registration allows public safety dispatchers to contact business owners in the event of an emergency. The City of Poughkeepsie Police Department are in the process of updating the local business contact listings so that we may better serve the public, including local business owners.
The update process with be conducted in conjunction with the Marist College internship program operated by the Police Department. Interns will be walking from store to store acquiring relevant data. They will have City of Poughkeepsie ID cards and a copy of this letter.
We can only complete this lengthy process with the cooperation of you, our area businesses. Should you have any questions about the persons collecting the data, you can confirm this through CPPD Headquarters at (845) 451-4000.
