Safe Watch Program


The Gloucester Police Department is committed to the safety of all of our residents. Knowing some people in the community have condition(s) that may cause them to wander, be unsafe or pose a danger to themselves or others, the Police Department working with volunteer organizations in the community has developed a Safe Watch Program.

The program is being implemented so that if a crisis occurs, the police have information on file to respond quickly using techniques that have the highest likelihood of leading to a successful outcome.

Family members, friends or caregivers are encouraged to make use of this program by calling the Police Department at (978) 325-5400 to arrange an appointment with Lt. Joseph Fitzgerald who will be your liaison with the department.
