The Sea Gate Police Department (SGPD) is a law enforcement agency in New York which is recognized by the New York Police Department and staffed by New York State peace officers and retired police officers participating duties to protect property, citizens, and to enforce state and city laws in the community of Sea Gate, Brooklyn (60th precinct). SGPD is privately funded by the Seagate Home Association.
Sea Gate is a private gated community that has more than 800 residences, a nursing home, a lighthouse, houses of worship, a playground, and beaches. The current Chief Of Police is Jeffrey Fortunato, a retired Captain from the NYPD.
The Sea Gate Police Department began in 1899 (a year after the Brooklyn Police Department merged with the New York City Police Department). When first started, the department was an all uniformed force. However, as the years passed, the department grew into a full-fledged agency with patrol officers, supervisors and later a detective unit to investigate crimes which occurred under the Sea Gate jurisdiction. All crimes in New York City are investigated by the NYPD as pre NYC charter Law.
Sea Gate officers are New York State peace officers under NYS Criminal Procedure Law 2.10 subsection 46, who have limited enforcement powers in Sea Gate community as detailed in the NYS Penal Law, NYS Vehicle and Traffic Law, NYS & NYC Environmental Protection Law (Engine Idling Law), and NYC Administrative Code. They are authorized to make arrests, make car stops on Seagate property, issue summonses, and carry a firearm, batons, tasers, pepper spray, and handcuffs.
