Message from the Chief

To the citizens of Westminster:

On behalf of the men and women of the Westminster Police Department, I welcome you to our web site. We appreciate your interest, and encourage you to visit us here often. The web site provides you with a variety of information on how our Department works, its outstanding and highly motivated personnel, and our community policing programs that we have available.

As we move ahead, I look forward to meeting our obligation to provide the best police service possible. As we develop programs, implement technology and take new initiatives, our department regards our citizens as our highest priority, and our primary function is to ensure the safety of the citizens of the Town of Westminster.

Traffic safety is a top priority and this department is committed to aggressive and innovative traffic enforcement and safety initiatives. Our educational programs and relationship with the Ashburnham Westminster Regional School District will continue with the addition of the School Resource Officer. The Westminster Police Department has a sincere interest in the youth of our community; they are one of our most valuable resources, and represent the future citizens of Westminster. The Westminster Police is very much a part of the community it serves.

I encourage you to browse our site and learn more about the programs we have developed. Through these programs we learn more about the needs of those we serve and they in turn better understand the challenges we face in policing. We hope you will find the information useful in getting to know us better and feel free to add suggestions and comments.

Sam Albert
Chief of Police
