It is the mission of the Falmouth Police Department to safeguard the lives and property of all people within our community. Our mandate is to do so with honor and integrity, while at all times conducting ourselves with the highest ethical standards.


Temporary Police Procedures (COVID-19)

In an effort to keep our citizens and first responder’s safe from the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we are asking the public to use discretion when seeking police services. As always, the Falmouth Police Department will respond immediately to 911 emergencies and calls for service.
Until further notice, we ask citizens to avoid coming to the police station unless it is an emergency.
If you have a situation that can be resolved over the phone by talking with a police officer, citizens are asked to call the business line at 774-255-4527. Please continue to use 911 to report emergencies.
Although we appreciate the support shown by our community by bringing in food, water, etc., we will not be accepting anything at this time as we try to minimize any potential of exposure.
These precautions are in effect to limit close personal contact and the spread of the virus.
We appreciate your support and patience through these times. We further extend our thanks for your cooperation and understanding.
