Beekman, New York

Beekman is a large town in Dutchess County, New York. As of March of 2022, Beekman’s population was 14,543. The town covers approximately thirty square miles and is located around seventy-five miles north of Manhattan. Beekman was established as a township in 1788.

Traffic Tickets in Beekman, New York
Beekman does not have its own police department. New York State Police and Dutchess County Sheriffs provide law enforcement services for the town. Traffic tickets that they issue are made answerable to the Beekman Town Court. The court is in the same building as the Beekman Town Hall, right next to the Dutchess County Sheriff Sub-station.
The speed limit in town fluctuates between 35 and 40 miles per hour, depending on the development of the area and the road conditions. Traffic stops for speeding usually take place on the town's larger roads, such as New York State Route 55.
NYS-55 traverses the town heading north-west and south-east. The road runs directly through Poughquag and provides access to Clove Valley and Green Haven via other roads. County Route 9 intersects with NYS-55 in Poughquag and runs south-west towards the Hamlets of Beekman and Sylvan Lake.
