RE: Community Relations Statement
DT: December 07, 2016
We join other Municipal Police Departments within the Commonwealth, as well as our State Police, in making a statement on community relations.
We want the community we serve to know that the Williamstown Police Department will continue to be committed to building and maintaining positive relationships within the community. We will always serve everyone in our community and we have zero tolerance for bullying or harassment. To further this commitment, it should be known that the Williamstown Police Department does not investigate civil immigration laws, as this role falls to the federal government. All of those within our boundaries should be completely confident that we are here to assist them in any crisis situation.
Municipal police exist to ensure public safety and security, and the Town of Williamstown has worked hard to ensure that there are strong, positive relationships among all groups in this community. We will continue in this manner moving forward.
Kyle J. Johnson
Chief of Police
