The Westbrook Police Department is proud to provide community policing and law enforcement services to our city.

A system of nightwatchmen and constables kept order in Westbrook from the time it became a town in 1814 until it became a city in 1891. Then, a City ordinance authorized the appointment of a City Marshall and three Police Officers and the Westbrook Police Department was established.

Today the Westbrook Police Department consists of 39 sworn Officers and 3 civilian employees, men and women committed to providing our community with the best in public safety. We are dedicated to working in partnership with our citizens, business owners, and civic leaders for the purpose of deterring crime, protecting our city and improving the quality of life in our neighborhoods.

Thank you for visiting our web site. Please call on us if we can be of any assistance to you or your family.
