NATIONAL AWARD FOR WAKEFIELD POLICE - NECN INTERVIEW
The Board of Selectmen is extremely proud of our Police Department's Silver Medal recognition by the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) for Community Policing. Chief Smith and his team have always exemplified readiness and preparation. In recent years, they have transcended typical police roles to partner and collaborate with non-law enforcement agencies, such as the Department of Mental Health. The result is a modern approach to providing specialized services and crisis intervention when dealing with a range of mental health issues that arise regularly in all communities. Wakefield continues to pursue the model of "best practice" in policing. They are the pride of our community.
