Saugerties Police Chief Joe Sinagra - Handle With Care Program

Podcast June 2022

This weekend's 1 in 44 guest is Joseph Sinagra. Joe is the Chief of Police for the Saugerties, NY police department. Chief Sinagra is seeking to help the Saugerties community with the launch of the new Handle With Care program within the department. The goal of "Handle with Care" is to give the department’s officers knowledge about community members who may have special needs like autism or suffer from cognitive disorders like Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia. The online database allows families to upload a photo of a loved one – along with emergency contacts – and any other pertinent information they want police to know if officers were to come in contact with the individual. You can register a loved one through the Saugerties Police Department’s “Handle with Care” database on the Saugerties CrimeWatch Website at https://crimewatch.net/us/ny/ulster/saugerties-pd. If you are interested in learning how to start your own Handle with Care program in your area, please reach out to Chief Sinagra - jsinagra@saugertiesny.gov!
