Department Description/Mission Statement
The department is a self-sufficient law enforcement agency that provides high quality traditional and non-traditional police service on a 24/7 basis to our community. Aside from processing a major crime scene or mitigating a catastrophic event, all law enforcement service is provided by Braintree police officers. Maintaining exceptional service has been increasingly difficult since the passage of Proposition 2 ½ in 1980. In fact, the most daunting tasks faced by management today are those associated with providing adequate service delivery within existing fiscal realities. The department is constantly being forced to do more with less. Our case load and calls for service over the past twenty five years have almost tripled, yet our resources seemingly continue to decline.

The Mission Statement of the Braintree Police Department is: “To work in partnership with the citizens of Braintree towards providing a safe environment and enhancing the quality of life consistent with the values of the community. We are committed to creating an atmosphere of safety and security in Braintree with the emphasis being on integrity, fairness, and professionalism.”
