Records Request

On January 1, 2017, the new Massachusetts Public Records Law becomes effective. The Westminster Police Department complies with all Federal and State laws pertaining to public records.

Essentially, all records a police department holds, creates, maintains, etc. are presumed to be public records unless a specifically-identified exemption applies.

Under the Massachusetts Public Records Law every person has the right to access public records.  This includes the right to inspect, copy or have copies provided to them.  One of the services that all police departments provide in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts is the dissemination of information to the public.

The Westminster Police Department has designated two Records Access Officers responsible for coordinating a response to requests for access to public records, assisting individuals seeking public records in identifying the records requested, and preparing guidelines that enable requesters to make informed requests regarding the availability of such public records electronically or otherwise.

The Westminster Police Department Records Access Officers and their contact information are as follows:

 

Administrative Assistant Nanette Pierce

7 South St.

Westminster, MA 01473

978-874-7412

 

Lieutenant Michael McDonald
