The Port Authority Police originated back on June 1, 1928, 40 men were selected to police the newly opened bridge, at the time know as the Arthur Kill Bridges, today known as the Staten Island Bridges. After assuming control of the Holland Tunnel, the Holland Tunnel's police unit merged with the officers from the Staten Island Bridges, and the Port Authority Police force was born. These forerunners became the foundation of a unique law enforcement team. Today the force is comprised of more than 1,400 men and women.

In order to carry out their responsibilities in their demanding jurisdiction the Port Authority Police have been given full enforcement powers in both New York and New Jersey. The primary jurisdiction is an area within a 25 mile radius of the Statue of Liberty. This area known as the Post District includes the world's busiest regional airport system, one of the largest office complexes in the United States, the largest container port on the East Coast and some of the most heavily traveled bi-state bridges, tunnels and approach roads in the country.

The primary responsibilities of the Port Authority includes law enforcement, fire fighting and rescue operations. However, officers are assigned to a vast range of duties. These duties include active patrol crime prevention, criminal investigations, traffic control, emergency first response assistance and drug interdiction.

The Port Authority's willingness to serve the people of New York-New Jersey regions is demonstrated not only by their actions on the job but also by the community service activities off the job.
