Nassau County Police Department



As of January 2016, the Nassau County Police Department provided us with information for 396 sworn personnel, 91% of whom were men and 82% of whom were white. Of the 36 women on the force, two-thirds were white.

While 37% of Nassau County’s residents are people of color, this was the case for only 18% of these officers. In addition to the 326 white sworn personnel, the department reported 33 black, 32 Hispanic, two Native American, and three Asian personnel, which was shockingly denoted with a “Y,” for “yellow” in the department production. Of the 47 personnel who held positions other than detective, only three were people of color.
