members of the Houlton Police Department (HPD) are honored
to serve the citizens of Houlton. The
HPD take this responsibility very serious and have
internal controls to ensure that the citizens of
Houlton are served with the respect and dignity that they deserve.
Community Policing is just one way to preserve
this quality of service from HPD. The HPD Motto
reflects this commitment to Community
serve the public better and keeping with the Community Policing
philosophy, HPD has a vigorous Canon of Ethics
for our Officers. We reinforce this with continuous training programs
to ensure that Houlton is receiving the best professional service
possible from its officers.
community is an important part of Community Policing. Programs such as
Watch Program are an excellent example of the community
watching out for one another and reporting suspicious activity or
something that just does not look natural to your neighborhood. Get to know your neighbors and be a
friend to them. You may be able to do something from having the HPD
come over to catch a thief, a stalker, or even
someone who intends to cause deadly harm to your neighbor. This last
reason is why it is very important to call 911 and let the HPD approach
the perpetrator. Do not ever try to approach someone who is acting
suspicious since you never know what they may be capable of doing.
benefit of Community
Policing is that it may be you or your home that is in
danger. If you have a good relationship with your neighbors it may be
one of them that will call to help you when you are the one in need of
assistance. You do not need to be part of a neighborhood watch program
to watch over our neighbors. However if you are interested in having a
neighborhood watch in your neighborhood, please call the HPD at the
non-emergency number listed above.
