Welcome Message

Message from the Chief of Police                  

Welcome to the North Reading, Massachusetts Police Department website. I hope our site will provide you with information and insight of the police services available to our community.

Over the past few years, there have been tremendous changes and progress within the department that we believe will benefit the entire community.  Our main priority is providing the safest environment for our residents to live in, our commuters to work in, and our visitors to stay in.
In 2011, our Department was awarded State Accreditation, an evaluation process by which police departments strive to meet and maintain standards that have been established for the profession, by the profession. I am most proud of the outstanding reputation our agency enjoys, a tribute to the many fine men and women who dedicate themselves to professionalism and fairness, providing quality services while protecting life and property through community partnerships. Each of our members plays an integral part in the success of our department to ensure that North Reading is a great place to raise a family, go to school, and conduct business.

I am hopeful that the information provided in this site will be useful and enhance your understanding of our agency, the types of services which we provide, and the role which we play in the community.

We want our web site to be informative. As you explore the site, I welcome any comments or suggestions you might have. Please feel free to email the department webmaster
