Falmouth Police Department Policies Regarding the Application of Force and Other Critical Areas

Earlier this year, the Falmouth Police Department began reviewing all policies and training protocols in preparation for an accreditation process this fall. This timely internal review will now include a greater focus on policies and practices encompassing all operational standards for the Department, reflective of best practices for law enforcement within Maine and across the country.
