Office of Emergency Management (OEM)
The Yorktown Police Department (YPD) Office of Emergency Management (OEM) is responsible for planning, preparation, mitigation and response to any large-scale event that occurs within- or directly affects the Town of Yorktown. YPD-OEM utilizes an "all hazards" approach to incident management and is ready to assist with any type of incident, including weather related events, large power outages, mass gatherings and visiting dignitary protection. When appropriate, YPD-OEM can utilize the Yorktown Emergency Operations Center (EOC).
