About the Somerville Police Department (SPD)
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.
