The mission of the Essex Police Department is to ensure a safe and secure environment for all persons by our officers providing professional law enforcement. Our Department instills accountability and responsibility in all personnel, and along with our partnership with the community, we serve with pride, compassion, and integrity. Through our community policing efforts, we are “Committed to the Community”.
As Chief of Police, I want to take this opportunity to welcome the citizens of Essex, and visitors to the Essex Police Department’s official website. I sincerely hope that you will find our website easy to navigate as you explore the many services and information that we provide to the public.
The creation of this website is another step in our efforts to improve communication with this community by keeping you informed as to activities and items of interest.
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. Thank you for visiting the Essex Police Department website and I hope that you may someday visit our quaint waterfront community which is rich in history and heritage.
