Chief's Message

 

Welcome to the Cambridge Police Department web site. We are pleased to provide another medium for delivering information to those we serve.

The department has a long, proud tradition of being part of the community, and as the city grows we strive to maintain the "small town feel" by being responsive to the changing needs of the people.

The Cambridge Police Department is a dynamic, value-based organization where community policing is a way of life.

Acting in partnership with the community to promote a responsive and flexible approach to quality of life issues is the foundation of Cambridge's community policing endeavors. Our effective coordination with other city agencies and community organizations have generated a variety of problem solving partnerships. These coalitions have been successful in developing comprehensive solutions to community problems, forging new strengths in combating crime, and helping to improve our community.

The pages that follow will allow us to provide more information to you about our police department and the community. We hope that you will find the web site both useful and informative.
