MESSAGE FROM CHIEF RUSS JENKINS
On behalf of the men and women of the Braintree Police Department I would like to welcome you to our web page. It is our hope that you will visit here often and see what’s new and to keep connected with us as we post information that we hope you will find useful, helpful and important. I would like to specifically call to your attention three very helpful links on our web page . . . SafetyNet, CodeRed and CrimeReports.
SafetyNet is a service that helps us locate persons who are prone to wander off. Autistic children, persons suffering from Alzheimer’s and others who loose their way can benefit from SafetyNet. These individuals wear a bracelet that emits a signal when activated that our officers and other trained rescuers can track with special equipment. The bracelet is low cost and truly a life saving investment. The Norfolk County Sheriff’s Office, through partnerships with various businesses, can offer significant price reductions to those in need.
CodeRed is a telephone notification system administered through the Norfolk County Sheriff’s Office that allows our department to rapidly notify residents with critical information. If your phone number is listed in the phone book, you are automatically in the database for phone calls. If you have an unlisted number and wish to receive telephone notifications you are encouraged to visit the CodeRed website and register your unlisted phone number.
CrimeReports allows you to monitor crime and other police activity, including the location of Level 3 sex offenders, in your neighborhood or any neighborhood or location in Braintree. Simply click on the CrimeReports icon and type in an address.
Our mission, simply stated, is to protect and serve our community. It is our hope that this web page will be one step towards a partnership that helps us accomplish our mission by offering services that will help you protect yourself, keep you informed and provide information that you will find useful.
Your support is crucial to our success. Thanks for visiting and come back often.
Russell W. Jenkins
Chief of Police
