Chief of Police

Frank Papapietro

Welcome to the New Milford Police Department website. The New Milford Police Department was founded in 1924 and currently consists of 34 sworn officers and three civilian personnel. We serve approximately 17,000 residents in a 2.2 sq mile area. Our officers have expertise in a variety of fields, such as drug recognition, accident investigation, DWI, traffic enforcement, emergency management, gang recognition, computer crimes, fraud investigation, firearms instruction, CPR, and terrorism. Additionally, New Milford officers are often assigned to regionalized police efforts, such as the Bergen County Rapid Deployment Force, Urban Area Security Initiative Rapid Deployment Team, Bergen County MARS Unit, Narcotics Task Force and also as certified Drug Recognition Experts. We are well respected within the law enforcement community and I am extremely proud to serve as Chief of such an outstanding group of professionals.
