Our Commitment to the Community

The Needham Police Department is committed to ensuring the safety and well being of all those who live, work and visit Needham. In an ongoing effort to respond to community concerns and suggestions around equitable policing and racial justice, the Department has released a response document that will be updated periodically. In addition, the Department has created a dashboard to provide important information and data regarding police interactions with the community. This dashboard will be updated at least annually and is currently being revised.
