The Auburn Police Department’s mission is to preserve peace, to reduce crime and the fear of it, while striving to improve the quality of life of Auburn’s residents and those who visit our community, by protecting, serving and working with the members of our community to develop principles which promote equity and establish partnerships between citizens and police to enhance law enforcement, aid in the prevention of crime, and preserve public peace.
Led by Chief of Police Todd Lemon 38 sworn police officers serve approximately 18,000 residents across 16.4 square miles. Within the ranks of the Auburn Police Department are numerous specialty divisions, which include the Auburn Police Department Detective Bureau, Traffic Division, School Resource Officer, K9 Unit, UAV (Drone Unit), Motor Unit, and SWAT. Members of the Auburn Police Department are assigned to each of these specialty positions which provides a wide variety of resources to allow for the best possible service for our residents.
The Auburn Police Department is dedicated to serving the community with respect, integrity and distinction and ensuring residents, business owners and visitors are provided with the best police services possible. Additionally, the department is currently in the process of becoming a Massachusetts Police Accreditation Commission (MPAC) Certified Police Department. Through this self-initiated, voluntary evaluation process, police departments strive to meet and maintain the highest standards of law enforcement and demonstrate their commitment to continuous progress and improvement.
