Message from Police Chief John T. Majoy

Welcome to the Newburgh Heights Police Department webpage.

We have outlined our mission, vision and values below and we hold these in high regard to strive for greatness in all that we do.

We subscribe to the “Community Oriented Policing” philosophy and therefore the primary focus of our agency involves community service.  Our officers take a problem-solving approach to situations encountered on a day-to-day basis and work toward interacting with residents and visitors to address relevant concerns.

Because we are a service-oriented agency we are here to serve  you.  Please feel free to contact me or any of our officers should you have questions or need assistance in any way.

Chief John T. Majoy
