Effective immediately, the Medway Police Department will be CLOSED to non-essential visitors as part of the department's response to the ongoing COVID-19 situation. The department will also conduct non-emergency business via phone for the foreseeable future. The lobby will be locked but please note there is an intercom system set up for visitor triage. Please call 508-533-3212 for all non-emergency business rather than walking in.
Some of the restrictions Chief Tingley has put in place include:
- Persons wishing to report crimes and incidents or seeking information or public records should do so via 911 for emergency situations or via 508-533-3212 for non-emergencies.
- No new LTC applications will be accepted due to new applications requiring fingerprinting.
- All LTC renewals can be filed via the department web site under the "Firearms Licensing" tab. Once the application is filed, the process will officially be started and not statutory deadlines will apply. Renewals can also be emailed to Sergeant Jeffrey Watson at firstname.lastname@example.org. MASSACHUSETTS RESIDENT LTC/FID/MACHINE GUN APPLICATION or filled out and submitted here: Firearms Licensing
- Medication and syringe collections in our lobby, will be suspended. If there is an emergency need to dispose of such items, please call the station for assistance at 508-533-3212.
- All tours are posponed.
- Courtesy fingerprinting is suspended.
- Burning permits will be issued over the phone. 2020 Open Burn Permit can be found on the website.
- Firearms, weapons and ammunition collection should be arranged via phone with Lieutenant William Kingsbury at 508-533-3212. Lieutenant Kingsbury can also be reached via email at email@example.com. Walk-ins will not be accepted.
The department will be restricting the non-essential services we provide. Officers will not be authorized to conduct courtesy transports or do car lockouts for the time being.
No outside food donations will be accepted. Our officers greatly appreciate donations of food especially in trying times but our pandemic protocol will force us to refuse all such generosity for the time being.
Our goal is to limit our officer's exposure to the virus so we can maintain a force that's in position to protect the lives and property of the public as well as maintain public order during this difficult time. To reach this goal, many typical services we provide will have to be limited.
