Brett Sprinkle - Chief of Police

Chief Sprinkle


Welcome to the Newburgh Police Department’s website.  We have tried to make this website easy to navigate and hope that it is informative, helpful, and a valuable resource. 

It is an honor to be chosen by the Newburgh Town Council to help make a difference in all areas of law enforcement in the community.  This includes dedication to community service and policing along with focusing on providing professional law enforcement services to residents in the Town of Newburgh. 

Our mission statement is to be committed to providing quality law enforcement services and to making our community a safe place to live, work, and raise a family. 

On behalf of the officers of the Newburgh Police Department, I would like to thank you for visiting our website and encourage you to contact us with any questions, concerns, or any situation that would require an officer’s assistance.

Brett Sprinkle, Chief of Police


Newburgh Town Marshal Office officially becomes

Newburgh Police Department

The Newburgh Town Council, at its April 14, 2010 meeting, voted to approve Ordinance 2010-5 abolishing the Office of Town Marshall and creating the Town of Newburgh Board of Metropolitan Police Commissioners. 

Chief Brett E. Sprinkle has been working on the 1977 Police and Fire Pension Fund project for approximately two years and about six months ago Officer Chad Bailey approached Chief Sprinkle and asked if he could continue working on the project.  Officer Bailey prepared and presented a Power Point presentation to the Newburgh Town Council and on April 14, 2010, the ordinance was approved. 

The department has followed several guidelines that are required by police departments and not required by marshal’s offices.  Under the 1977 Police and Fire Pension Fund, the families of officers are entitled to survivor benefits.  Under the Public Employee Pension Fund (PERF) that officers have been enrolled, there are no survivor benefits.   

Under the 1977 Fund, the department’s hiring procedures will change.  No one over the age of thirty-six (36) will be hired, a post physical and post psychological evaluation will be required, and the Newburgh Town Council will no longer hire officers, the Board of Police Commissioners will be responsible for hiring. 

The Board of Police Commissioners is comprised of up to three (3) members.  The current members are:  

Anne Rust Aurand – One (1) year term

William F. Kavanaugh – Two (2) year term

Alonzo B. Moore, Jr. – Three (3) year term 

The term in office of a Board Member shall expire on January 1 of the third (3) year after the members appointment, except that the initial appointments to the Board shall be staggered with the initial appointment of one (1) member being appointed for a term of one (1) year, one (1) member being appointed for a term of two (2) years and the third member being appointed for a term of three (3) years.  After the initial appointment, the appointments to the office shall be for a term of three (3) years.

A Child Is Missing

A Child Is Missing (ACIM)
A child goes missing every 40 seconds in the United States.
Your child has a 1 in 42 chance of going missing.

ACIM is devoted to assisting law enforcement in the search and early safe recovery efforts of children, the elderly (often with Alzheimer's), disabled persons, and college students via a rapid-response neighborhood alert program utilizing high-tech telephony systems.

ACIM can place 1,000 calls in sixty seconds, can process multiple cases simultaneously, and can work without jurisdictional boundaries. 

ACIM also has a sexual predator/offender program, offered in states that allow law enforcement to notify residents that a predator has moved into their neighborhood.
