  • Police Surveillance Cameras

  • Neighborhood Policing

As surveillance technology use grows nationally, the City of Somerville has joined 19 U.S. cities and two states working with the ACLU to protect individual rights while preserving public safety. On Oct. 4, with the full support of the Somerville Police Department, Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone signed the Executive Policy on Surveillance Technology, which is believed to be the first such policy implemented in the Commonwealth.

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.
