Welcome to the Somerset Police Department Website
On behalf of all who contributed to this website, we hope that you will find it to be helpful and instructive.
Chief Joseph C. Ferreira
All the professionals of the Somerset Police Department strive to carry out our sworn duties to ‘protect and serve’ the public.
That is the reason we collectively choose to display this motto on our newly designed black and white police cruisers in 2005.
We are very mindful that we can only ‘protect and serve’ if we are in partnership with the community.
To that extent, we are extremely publicly oriented and have put many programs in place to ensure maximum intervention with the public.
We are proud to have such programs as public safety day, a teenage police academy, an adult police academy, vacation home checks,
outreach programs for the elderly, car seat installations,, and much more.
It is our goal to carry out our duties with a standard of excellence. We are constantly engaged in updating services, policies,
training and equipment to help us face the ever changing demands of society.
If there is anything we can do to assist you in furtherance of our duties and pledge to provide the best police service, please call,
stop by or send an email. Thank you for visiting the website.
Col. Joseph C. Ferreira, Chief of Police
