The Cumberland Police Department is comprised of dedicated, professional police officers that are committed to our community.  The men and women of the police department are committed to providing our citizens with the best possible service.

It is our belief that while the mission of the Cumberland Police Department is to serve and protect the public, it is also our obligation to keep you informed of the various changes occurring within our department and the people and issues that affect law enforcement in our town.  To carry our mission forward, we work closely with neighborhood groups, schools, churches, social service agencies, other town departments and other law enforcement agencies.  

We know that it takes effective partnerships to ensure that our citizens possess the very best quality of life. Partnerships are two-way relationships and will require a similar commitment from individuals, groups and organizations outside the control of the police.  Everyone has a role in the pursuit of public safety.

The Cumberland Police Department is National Accredited. The overall goal of the Accreditation program is to improve the delivery of law enforcement services to the community it supports. Like all organizations, the Cumberland Police Department continually looks for ways to upgrade its policies and procedures. No matter how effective daily operations are, there is always room for improvement.


"To provide professional police service in our diverse and growing community through a spirit of cooperation and communication; enhancing the quality of life through impartial enforcement of the law and recognizing the changing face of our nation, emphasizing the highest level of integrity and ethical standards."
