A Message From the Chief

Thank you for taking the time to view the Barnstable Police Department's website.

We hope this website will provide you with information on how the Department works, its outstanding personnel, and a number of the community-based programs we are involved in. We have also included several forms that will help you expedite any reporting requirements.

The types of issues we deal with are as various as the town we patrol, with incidents ranging from those common in rural areas to those common in cities. There remains one constant in our work… every member of the Department, both sworn officers and civilian staff, works hard each day to make Barnstable a better, safer community.

Please review the information presented here, and if we can be of further assistance, do not hesitate to contact us.


Paul MacDonald

Chief of Police
