Police accredited


The Police Department was recently accredited by the Massachusetts Police Accreditation Commission. In order to reach that status, the department had to update 69 of its procedures and policies and get assessed by a team of accreditation officials. Wareham had been working toward this goal for some time, and Town Administrator Mark Andrews applauded the accomplishment. In a press release, Andrews said: “When Chief Richard Stanley arrived in August of 2009, he set state accreditation as a top priority. Now, Wareham is one of 33 municipal police departments in the Commonwealth to reach this tremendous achievement.” Wareham police received the honor at a ceremony at the Andover Country Club on Jan. 26. - Emily Sweeney
