Chief of Detectives Peter Walker Retires After 30 Years of Law Enforcement Service

Yesterday, Chief of Detectives Peter Walker did a final walkout at the County Courthouse in New City as he retired from the District Attorney's office after thirty years of law enforcement service.

Chief Walker started his career with the NYPD in 1994, patrolling the streets of the Bronx while assigned to the 48th Precinct.

In December of 1999, Chief Walker was hired as a patrol officer with the Clarkstown Police Department. He was selected to become the department’s Public Information Officer, building an incredibly strong bond between the community and the police department.

In May of 2018, Walker was promoted to detective. During his tenure with the Clarkstown Police Department, he was assigned to numerous details, including a member of the Critical Incident Response Team as a police sniper, field training officer, department’s budget assessment team, and Supervisor of the department’s Records Department. He also served in many roles in the Clarkstown PBA.   

While in the NYPD and at the Clarkstown police department, Chief Walker also served honorably in the United States Navy for 26 years, retiring as a Chief Petty Officer.

Walker retired from the Clarkstown Police Department in January 2020 when he was appointed as the Chief Criminal Investigator of the Rockland County District Attorney's Office, where he oversaw approximately 30 investigators and support staff and acted as the liaison to all outside police agencies to ensure the District Attorney’s Office was working effectively and efficiently with its partners.
