Did you know?

Watertown Police uses a record-keeping system that can safely maintain critical information about your business as well as your home/family.

The Watertown Police Department Communications Division requests that if you own/operate a business in town that you keep an updated record with Dispatch for emergency after-hours numbers and any particulars that you feel would be beneficial for first responders.  

Information about medical concerns (resident uses Oxygen), security measures (hide a key), property specifics (driveway on side street), etc can be easily entered into our system and relayed to police and fire for calls for service.
