Chief's Message
Welcome to the Millis Police Department Website. We are very pleased to provide you with access to information about the department and some insight into the services we provide. As the Chief of Police, I am very proud of the men and women of our department who have chosen to dedicate themselves to serving our community. Our goal is to provide the best possible law enforcement services by adhering to shared values that include Integrity, Accountability and Professionalism.

Statistically speaking, MPD handled 8,966 incidents for 2013. Many of these were patrol initiated, but residents continue to be our eyes and ears. Calls for suspicious persons, suspicious vehicles, and disturbance calls were higher than in previous years, and these calls assist us to be more effective and efficient in delivery of services. Motor vehicle enforcement accounted for well over twenty percent of department activity, addressing the number one concern of residents. Other trends include Internet based complaints, such as fraud, identity theft, or harassment; domestic disputes; and an increase in motor vehicle crashes. We also saw an uptick in property crimes, such as vandalism, breaking and entering (vehicles and homes), and larceny.

For 2013, the Millis Police Department took 69 people into custody. The breakdown follows:

Protective Custody
18
Unlicensed Operation of M/V
5
Assault & Battery
1
Warrant Arrest
13
OUI Liquor

Breaking & Entering
1

Additionally, 86 court complaints were sought through Wrentham Court.

Close to 700 Motor vehicle citations were issued in 2013, the bulk of which were for aggressive driving violations, such as speeding (254) and red light violation/failure to stop/yield (167). Other citations included safety related and equipment violations, seatbelt violations, and commercial vehicle violations. We will continue to make motor vehicle violations a top priority to keep everyone safe.  

2013 marks the beginning of a new exciting era for the Millis Police Department.  The Millis Police Department is sincerely grateful for all the community support.  This is an exciting time for the Millis Police Department as we start the process of making the new police station a reality.                                                                                                                                                   
Thank you for taking the time to view our website. Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.

Sincerely,
