Norwood Police Department is an accredited agency consisting of over sixty sworn officers.  These officers are responsible for the safety of Norwood's 28,000 residents and visitors alike.  We work to secure the community by patrolling an area of just over 10 square miles by means of three shifts over twenty four hours, three hundred and sixty five days a year. Our officers take pride in the responsibility given to them by the town of Norwood  and are grateful to serve this community.  Welcome to our official website.
