On Wednesday, February 10, 2021, the Rensselaer Police Department will be upgrading their Phone System.  Beginning at 10:00AM, they will roll their phone lines to the East Greenbush Police Department Communications.  East Greenbush will answer their phones and have direct radio contact with the Rensselaer Police to dispatch any calls during this time period.  It is their hope that this process should not take any longer than 20 minutes.  Residents may also call 911 and Rensselaer County will answer these calls and also have radio contact with the Rensselaer Police.  It is the goal of the Police Department to make this transition as seamless as possible.
