Hello, my name is Chief Brian Kyes and on behalf of the members of the Chelsea Police Department I want to take this opportunity to welcome you to the Chelsea Police Department’s web site. Through this medium, it is my hope and intention to both improve as well as increase the communication and interaction with the Chelsea Community at large including residents, business owners, clergy, community organizations, political leaders as well as those who choose to visit this informative web site.
Today, more and more local urban police departments must look for community-based problem solving initiatives aimed at deriving solutions to address the challenges of modern policing and the complexities of diverse communities such as the City of Chelsea. These local departments are united in the collective belief that our role goes well beyond simply enforcing the laws. Non-enforcement tasks such as public education, community development and crisis intervention are extremely important to the quality of life in the community. In partnership with the residents, business and political leaders, community and faith based organizations within the City of Chelsea, we shall continue to be committed to the implementation of the ideals and philosophy of Community Policing.
Given the recent and future growth of the local population as well as the ever changing demographics of the City of Chelsea, the police department must be prepared to respond accordingly to the challenges that we face. Forward thinking and strategic planning with an eye towards risk management techniques and utilization of the “best practices approach” in policy development and formulation shall serve as the foundation of the future of the Chelsea Police Department. Through the working partnerships with the community we serve, a vehicle for accomplishing needed change shall be instituted given the crossroads that we currently find ourselves in providing for a safe and secure community in which to live, work or visit.
