The goal of neighborhood policing is to encourage increased interaction between residents and police officers so that issues and concerns may be addressed before they become real problems or crimes. Neighborhood policing means stronger relationships and increased trust between residents and the police officers who serve and protect them. In order to better serve the residents of Somerville the city invested in two neighborhood police substations: an East Substation and a West Substation.
The East Substation is located at 81 Broadway and the West Substation is located at 1114 Broadway. Both substations operate with the normal business hours of Monday -- Friday, 8:30am to 4:30pm. Citizens may use the substation for such services as:
- Reporting a Crime
- Obtaining a Police Clearance Report
- Obtaining a copy of an Operator's Crash Report to fill out
- Obtaining a copy of a Police Report that pertains to them
- Obtaining a copy of an Officer's Crash Report
