Massena has a lot to offer

Check out these Programs:

TRIAD & Neighborhood Watch

The Massena TRIAD Program was developed in 2005 to enhance the delivery of law enforcement, social services and the public awareness of crime activity and reduce the criminal victimization of older citizens, people with disabilities, and those with common issues in the Massena area.

The Massena Neighborhood Watch program was started in 2009 to address growing concerns about the increase in crime in Massena.

In 2012 the groups were merged to improve the efforts of preventing criminal activity and delivering law enforcement services to our community

Member organizations include Massena Senior Citizens, Massena Housing Authority, Massena Independent Living Center, Massena Police Department, St. Vincent DePaul, Massena Village Board and other concerned citizens.

The organization meets the 2nd Thursday of the Month at 1:30pm at the Massena Independent Living Center at 156 Center Street. [no meetings in December and January]

For more information call Adam J. Love, Chief of Police at 315-769-3577



The department sponsors a program known as “Vacant House Check” – where citizens inform the police before they leave their homes for vacation or extended absences, and officers keep a watchful eye on their property. Although our staff works hard to ensure we check known vacant properties routinely, because of other demands we are unable to guarantee it. You can come to the police department and complete a form or download it HERE and bring it to the police station.

Call the department at 315-769-3577 for more information.

Emergency Preparedness:

What would you do if a major fire, flood, earthquake, or toxic spill occurred near where you live or work? Although we can’t always prevent disaster, we can be prepared. Learn how to better protect yourself, your family and your property in a disaster.

As part of our commitment to keep your teenagers safe, the Massena Police Department will conduct drive-by home checks while parents are out of town. All you need to do is complete a “Teen Safety Home Check” form.  You can download one HERE, or the form is available at the police station.

Once a completed form is received, you will be provided with a flyer that you can post in your home letting your teenager known that the police will be checking the home.

The parents would leave a phone number they can be reached at.  The police would contact the parents if they drove by and noticed suspicious activity. The parents would then either decide to handle the situation when they got home or ask the officer to intervene.


NOTE:  Because it is always difficult to predict the amount of work this agency might experience at any given time, we cannot guarantee this service.  We will do our very best to provide it based upon available manpower.


"We Care Call Program" is a free daily phone call service provided to seniors, disabled persons, and people that are shut in.

The call is made at a pre-selected time which provides a daily check on a person. You can download HERE, for the form and more information.



The Massena Masonic Temple and Massena Police have teamed up to provide an important program that provides FREE fingerprints and photographs, including all identifying information to a family.

The first several hours after a child, elderly, or disabled person is reported missing can be critical to the successful outcome of the case. Having valuable information about the missing person ready and at hand for Law enforcement agencies is imperative. The MSID's FREE Program is designed to help parents with having this information ready and available when needed.


Massena Drug Free Coalition

The Massena Drug Free Coalition was formed to reduce the impact of illegal drugs in our community through the development and implementation of comprehensive integrated strategy of prevention; education; intervention; law enforcement and treatment.

The Coalition meets the 2nd Tuesday of the Month at 9:30am in the Board Room at Massena Memorial Hospital.
