          The City of Long Beach has formed a Public Safety Committee.  The objective of the Public Safety Committee is to establish dialogue between citizens and City employees in order to create more awareness about all safety concerns within our city. This will help address and attempt to remedy any traffic conditions.  In addition, the Long Beach Police Department is currently working with RBA Group on a comprehensive traffic study which will give the City of Long Beach the ability to petition our legislators to change any speed limits deemed necessary.         

          In 2013, the President Streets neighborhood speed limit reduced to 15 MPH as a direct result of permissive legislation, as well as our ability to work with other levels of Government including the State Senate, State Assembly, and Governor’s Office. The City of Long Beach and the Long Beach Police Department is aware of further concerns about speeding in other areas of Long Beach such as the one way streets from Chester Street to Bay Drive and Walnut Street to Penn Street.  In 2013, the President Streets neighborhood speed limit reduced to 15 MPH as a direct result of permissive legislation, as well as our ability to work with other levels of Government including the State Senate, State Assembly, and Governor’s Office.

          The City of Long Beach Boardwalk has again become the premier bicycle route on Long Island. Sharrows were installed to facilitate the City's partnership in the bike rental program. The “Share the Road" campaign was initiated to make motorists aware that we are a “bicycle friendly community" and that they must use caution while driving. Signs were placed at entrances into the City to notify the motoring public of this information.The City of Long Beach Boardwalk has again become the premier bicycle route on Long Island.

          In partnership with the Nassau County Traffic Safety Board, the Long Beach Police Department has received grants to be utilized for the following:

¨      STOP-DWI

¨      Buckle Up New York (B.U.N.Y.) 

¨      Selective Traffic Enforcement Program (S.T.E.P.) 

¨      Safe Routes to Schools

          Long Beach has one of only 3 Drug Recognition Expert (DRE) Officers in Nassau County. The highly specialized training which a DRE Officer receives significantly enhances the Department's ability to detect, apprehend, and prosecute motorists that are driving while intoxicated by means other than alcohol.

          2013
           *6 DRE evaluations and 13 DWI Drug Arrests
          2014
           *17 DRE evaluations and 24 DWI Drug Arrests

          In an attempt to minimize inconvenience of both residents and motorists alike while Long Beach rebuilds from the devastating effects of Superstorm Sandy, The Department has instituted a night time street painting system. New road painting and thermo-plastic equipment has been purchased, and will allow the City to keep crosswalks and roads properly marked. The Long Beach Police Department is aggressively taking care of graffiti. Please report any graffiti you might see around town to (516) 431-1800.
