How are suspected incidents of police intimidation handled?

Our officers are expected to treat all members of the public with dignity and respect. Intimidation is unacceptable, and we do not allow it. We encourage the reporting of any behavior believed to be inappropriate, which can come directly to the Police Chief or directly to the Town Manager, who oversees the Police Department in a civilian capacity. When we receive a complaint, we assign a command staff officer to investigate immediately, and then take appropriate action based on the investigation's findings.

Information on filing police complaints is available on our website.
