Somerville Police at the National Law Enforcement Museum

GAMESpotlight on the Somerville Police Department

The SPD is nominated to participate as one of five police agencies across the country for the National Law Enforcement Museum Five Communities Exhibition in October 2018.

The National Law Enforcement Museum recognized the Somerville Police Department and the Center for Teen Empowerment as one of five communities who is working hard to strengthen the relationship between law enforcement and the people it serves. The museum will open its doors to the public October 2018 in Washington DC for this temporary exhibition featuring five communities across the nation.
Somerville has been invited to see the exhibition which opens in October 2018. The museum features educational programs and an insightful look on law enforcement topics from the past, present, and future. Attendees will have an opportunity to walk through time and glimpse through the changes in law enforcement. The five communities chosen for this exhibition include Charleston, Cleveland, Dallas, Oakland, and Somerville. The Somerville Police Department is deeply honored to have been chosen to participate in this temporary exhibition. This honor would not have been possible if not for the collaboration and strong relationship the SPD have with community partners like the Center for Teen Empowerment and so many others in the City of Somerville.
This summer the Somerville Police and the Center for Teen Empowerment have teamed up again for the Walking Dialogues. The Walking Dialogues allows the SPD and Somerville Youth to walk the streets of Somerville and have community members engaged in a productive dialogue with law enforcement.

  • 2. Isolation
  • 3. Verbal abuse or threats
  • 4. Changes in mood or behavior
  • 5. A rapid decline in health of unexplained weight loss
  • 6. Neglected care needs
  • 7. Hesitation to speak openly

----June is Elder Abuse Awareness Month, if you are concerned about an older adult and have reason to believe they are being abused, call the Statewide Elder Abuse Hotline at 1-800-922-2275. All calls are confidential and are referred to local Adult Protective Services, which can investigate and determine the best course of action to alleviate risk.
