Community Policing

Community Policing

Effective January 1, 2012, the Brunswick Police Department is changing the manner in which it performs community policing. Previously, one officer was primarily assigned to participate in community policing initiatives and interact with community organizations. We are restructuring the department so that all officers can become more involved with community policing. Our hope is that over time, each officer will have an initiative, neighborhood association or organization with whom he/she works.

If you would like to partner with the Brunswick Police Department on a community event or initiative, please contact Captain Mark Waltz.  Captain Waltz will discuss the event with you and determine if it looks like something with which the police department could get involved (after considering competing needs and resources). If the BPD decides to get involved, Captain Waltz will find an officer to work with your organization/group.

Eldercare Program
The Eldercare program, although designed for the aging members of our community, has expanded to encompass anybody that may have Alzheimer’s or a similar affliction that affects their mental status. The program allows a caregiver to provide vital emergency contact information, medical information as well as a photograph to the police department.
