We are a community policing centered department, which means that we seek to establish positive relationships with our citizens and work toegther to develop a sense of safety and security in our community.  We have an open door policy and we spend a great deal of time interacting with and listening to the issues and concerns of our citizens.

Our officers are highly trained in many specialized areas.  Several officers are certified EMT’s and certified instructors through the Maine Criminal Justice Academy.  Others have completed training in traffic accident reconstruction, sex crime investigations, search and rescue dog/officer teams, and many other advanced topics.  Most importantly, Oakland officers are friendly, helpful, courteous, and professional in the performance of their duties, and are always available when help is needed, whether it is responding to a car accident, conducting a criminal investigation, performing routine patrol, property checks or community service initiatives.

Oakland Police officers are on duty 24 hours a day and can be reached at 465-2202. In case of emergency dial 911.
