Dear Community, 

The year 2016 was a very challenging year for law enforcement on a global spectrum. Community relations became a major focus and the need for stronger partnerships was recognized.

During my tenure as Chief, I have always strived to build the strongest relations with the residents of Livingston, and to maintain the safety of the entire community. We have developed and presented numerous programs to our residents and appreciate the support we receive in return.

I will continue to support new partnerships throughout the community and welcome and opportunity to meet with our residents on any concerns they may have.

Looking ahead to 2017, we will see an increase in our population as more residential projects are completed. We will realize an increase in visitors to the area with the opening of many new businesses throughout the community. Traffic safety will remain a high priority for us with a strong emphasis on safety for our pedestrians and bicyclists.

Livingston is a tremendous community and it is my honor to serve as the Chief of Police. On behalf of all the men and women of the Livingston Police Department, I would like to wish everyone a Happy, Healthy and Safe New Year!

Craig M. Handschuch, Chief of Police

Livingston Police Department

February 8, 2018

Let the Games Begin

The problem is that in my deluded head, I can see actually see myself standing atop the podium.  I am wrapped in a puffy designer ski coat with a huge piece of bling slung around my neck ...

In the Driver's Seat

Honey, I am going to take the Roadster out for a quick spin around the sun. I’ll be back in a few million years.

 

That’s nice dear. While you are out, could you pick up a gallon of milk?
