Our motto, “Excellence Matters,” guides our officers in the daily performance of their duty; be it responding to an emergency, a routine call for service, or investigating a crime. Each citizen we encounter should expect to be treated with dignity and respect.

To ensure public safety, law enforcement must partner with those who live, work, and play in our community. We all have a stake in achieving success and by working together we can make it happen. Please explore this site to learn more about our units, programs, and services.

The Cheektowaga Police Department is in the final month of collecting new blankets for Senator Tim Kennedy’s WarmUp WNY blanket drive. The collected blankets will be donated to the John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital and distributed to the young patients there. Our last day for donations will be on February 29, 2020. Last year we collected over 500 blankets through the generous donations made by the citizens of the town of Cheektowaga, the Cheektowaga Police Club and the Cheektowaga Captains and Lieutenants Association. Thus far, we are below that number and would like to count your support of this very worthwhile cause. We need a great final push. All of the donated blankets will be delivered to Senator Tim Kennedy’s office on March 2nd. We have a donation box inside the station by the front desk!!!

Please help us to keep the children warm and comfortable during their stay at the John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital.

It is INTERNET SAFETY DAY!!!!

Kids today have never known a time when they weren't connected to the internet. This presents parents with the impossible task of keeping track of an increasing variety of applications, social media platforms, and communication lines. The social media landscape seems to change every day with new apps, security risks, and privacy concerns-- and it can be tough for parents to keep up. Here are some ways to protect your children online.

- Educate your kids about online dangers.
- Stay up to date on the apps that are popular with kids. Research the apps, know how the app is used and how the kids are using them.
- Use apps to help monitor your child's devices. Net Nanny, Norton Family, Qustodio, Verizon Smart Family, and Bark are some that received good reviews. Some of these apps capabilities are tracking phone calls, texts, block certain apps, filter online content, track screen time, GPS location, and allows the parent to be alerted if your child is searching certain words like suicide, eating disorders, sex etc.
- Do not let your child use computers or play video games in their room alone with the doors closed. Have these devices in a high traffic part of the house so you can monitor your child's activity.
- We recommend to cut off screen time 1 hour before bed.
Smart phones are typically the main culprit, but even tablets and TVs can emit blue light that can contribute to poor sleep.
- Do not let a child have their phone in their room overnight. Make sure to charge the phones in your bedroom.
- Install a child-safe internet browser like KidRex, Maxthon or Kidsplorer that will only allow your child on pre-approved websites & games only.
