"It is my pleasure, on behalf of the men and women of The Town of Southwick Police Department to welcome you to our updated website.

The site provides helpful information about our Police Department, its structure, its services, and the men and women who service this Community. It is our hope that this new updated website will improve and generate communications between the Department and the Community of Southwick.

As Police Chief, I have a number of responsibilities. One of those responsibilities is ensuring that the Citizens of Southwick are provided with the best public safety services possible. I am blessed to work with a talented and dedicated staff of sworn Officers, Emergency Communications Dispatchers, and Administrative staff who endeavor to meet the highest ethical and professional standards, and pride themselves on the quality of law enforcement services provided to the Citizens of the Town of Southwick.

Our focus is to maintain a partnership with the Community we serve. The members of the Southwick Police Department know the importance of a community partnership as we strive to provide the highest quality of service to citizens of the Town of Southwick. I believe that if we are to reduce crime and raise the quality of life in the Town of Southwick we must build a strong relationship between the Police Department and the Community as we both share in the responsibility for crime control and Public Safety. The members of this organization know that one of our best assets in fighting crime is the Citizens we serve. In addition, it is essential that we develop trust and openness between Police and the Citizens if we are to reach our goal. We look forward working with the members of our Community to build strategies that will make the Town of Southwick a safer place to live and visit.

I encourage you to explore our website to learn more about us and the services we provide. I hope that you will take advantage of the many opportunities to be involved in our Community and Department. It is recommended that you visit our website for important Community Alerts. I would also invite you to visit us on Facebook and Twitter. You are invited to contact the Department with any questions you may have. You are also invited to call the Police Department to make an appointment for a guided tour of our facility. We would be honored to show you this Department and introduce you the Officers."
