Attention Nassau County Residents.
The Nassau County 7th Precinct Auxiliary Police Units are conducting ongoing recruitment for new members.
The 7th Precinct units are:
Unit 132 Wantagh
Unit 133 Seaford
Unit 315 Massapequa Park
Unit 316 Massapequa & Plainegde
These 4 Units work very closely. They share the Massapequa Unit HQ located behind the Town of Oyster Bay Town Hall South. They each patrol their own areas but also cover the other's areas as backup. They share the cars assigned to each unit as one fleet. The 4 units work closely with the 7th Precinct POP Unit of the Nassau County Police. Because Auxiliary Police Units were set up under the Civil Defense, the patrol areas do not follow the boarders of the Nassau County Police Precincts. These members may be seen working details outside the 7th Precinct. The Wantagh Unit also answers to the 1st Precinct & the Massapequa-Plainegde Unit also answers to the 8th Precinct.
The Auxiliary Police:
The Auxiliary Police was established pursuant to provisions of
the Civil Defense act of 1951
and is composed of civic-minded residents of the community who work together to improve
the level of safety and security in their community. The presence of the Auxiliary Police, in uniform,
on patrol in marked police units has been proven to reduce vandalism and other crimes in the community.
