Welcome to Gloucester!
This is the Official Website of the Gloucester, Massachusetts Police Department. We are on-duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to serve the citizens of Gloucester and our visitors and business owners on land and water. Scroll through this page to learn more about GPD and our public safety mission.
The Gloucester Police Department deploys traditional patrol, bicycle, motorcycle, all-terrain units to patrol, secure, and serve the City of Gloucester and its mixed terrain including streets and beaches.
Our Marine Unit is in the water to serve Gloucester Harbor and our rich fishing and boating culture. The Gloucester Police Department operates a 27-foot SafeBoat powered with twin 225hp engines, capable of speeds up to 43 knots. This allows us to effectively patrol the waterways and enforce the law on the water. It is also equipped with a fire pump capable of a 500 gallon per minute output.
This is Our Community.
We are Gloucester. We bring our families here. We raise our kids here. We work hard to uphold the traditions and sense of community in our City, and we expect to be held to an extremely high standard.
The members of the Gloucester Police Department are committed to excellence in law enforcement, and are dedicated to the people, traditions and diversity of our city. In order to protect life and property, prevent crime and reduce the fear of crime, we will provide service with understanding, response with compassion, performance with integrity and law enforcement with vision.
