City of Cambridge New Public Safety Complex

The Cambridge Police Department was established in 1910 with a total of five police officers under the direction of Chief Charles G. Pritchett. Prior to 1910 law enforcement had been the responsibility of bailiffs and seasonal officers who were needed because of the oyster industry.

The City of Cambridge currently maintains a modern, highly trained, and diverse staff of 46 sworn officers and 12 civilians. The department is located in the Edward E. Watkins Public Safety Complex at 8 Washington Street.

The Cambridge Police Department is the largest police agency in Dorchester County.
