Chief’s Message

chief-dunneWelcome to the Falmouth Police Department’s website.

As Chief of Police I am extremely proud of the men and women of the Falmouth Police Department. Currently, the department is funded for fifty-eight sworn officers, five seasonal police officers and six civilians. The Falmouth Police Department serves a residential population of over 32,000 people and in the summer over 100,000.

I have over thirty-eight years working for the Falmouth Police Department. Throughout my career I have held many positions in the Department such as Sergeant, Captain of Specialized Services, Falmouth SRT Commander, and now I’m proud to serve as your Chief of Police. I hold a master’s degree in criminal justice from Western New England College and earned my bachelor’s degree from Boston State College. I currently serve as Sergeant at Arms for the Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Association, 2nd Vice President for the Southeastern Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Association and a member of the Executive Board for the Falmouth Chamber of Commerce.  My active memberships also include the New England Association of Chiefs of Police, Cape and Islands Police Chiefs Association, and International Association of Chiefs of Police.

The Falmouth Police Department is a full service law enforcement agency committed to a high quality, efficient service working with community groups, businesses, local government, Falmouth Chamber Commerce, residents and all community stakeholders. We recognize that successful policing cannot be done without the support of the community.

As Chief of Police I promise transparency and accountability for not only myself but for our entire Department.  We strive to hold ourselves to a higher standard of conduct and to maintain the trust and confidence of our citizens and visitors.
