Natick, MA 01760
The Mission and Training of the Natick Police Department, and the training of all Massachusetts Police Officers, is based on a community policing philosophy and the theories from the Six Pillars of the President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing Report in 2015. These pillars include; Building Trust and Legitimacy; Policy and Oversight; Technology and Social Media; Community Policing and Crime Reduction, Training and Education and Officer Safety and Wellness. Every member of this department is dedicated to these pillars and the actions, such as those in Minneapolis, is contrary to this and would not be acceptable in our organization or by our community. We practice these pillars through our engagement in the community, through our willingness to be part of the conversation and discussion no matter how difficult the topic and also our desire to join together to be partners in problem solving.
