As Chief of Police, I want to take this opportunity to welcome all visitors to the Essex Police Department’s official website. I sincerely hope that you will find our website easy to navigate through, as you explore the many services and the host of information that we provide to the public. I have made some additions to this website to introduce you to our staff who serves the community. We have also provided several new easy to use links to help quickly bring you to a variety of new places that will assist you as well. You will also find a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) section that has been added with some of the most common questions that we receive from the public regarding alcohol and youths, drivers licenses, and other questions that will be helpful for the viewer to
increase the communication between the public, and our department to keep you informed. Please also visit us on Facebook so that you may keep current with information that I am sending out regarding events in town, safety tips from the Chief, and a variety of other information that would be extremely helpful to you.
On behalf of our entire department, it is both our pleasure and our privilege to work together with our community to ensure the Town of Essex remains a safe and comfortable place to live, work and visit. Essex is rich in history, offers countless excellent restaurants for dining, plenty of antique shops and art for treasure enthusiasts, as well as provides some of the most beautiful sights of the Essex River whether you are fishing, kayaking, or just taking in the scenery of Hog Island and Crane Beach. Thank you for visiting the Essex Police Department website. If you have any comments or suggestions about our website or if there is something that you think would be beneficial to have on our website, please feel free to contact me.
