Central Park is patrolled by both the New York City Parks Enforcement Patrol and the New York Police Department. The Central Park Police Precinct can be found on 86th St and Traverse Road, where it has been located since its construction in 1871.
New safety measures put into action in 2005 have drastically increased safety within Central Park. There are now less than one hundred crimes per year, which can make Central Park's annual 20 million visitors feel a bit more at ease.
