The Boxborough Police Department has assigned Officer Tyler Mc Elman as the COVID-19 Response Officer. He will be the contact person for the department in all matters related to the public health emergency. Officer McElman will be working closely with the Town's Council of Aging and Community and Social Services Director and Officer Robert Arakelian, the department's social service coordinator.
Officer McElman may be reached via email and by phone at 978-264-1768. A voice mail may left for non-emergency situations. Please note that if you have an emergency, the number to call is 911.
Limited Personal Contact & Face-to-Face Interactions
As Covid-19 virus continues to spread it is the Boxborough Police Department's desire to keep our staff and members of the public healthy. Therefore, will be limiting personal contact and face-to-face interactions whenever possible. This will allow us the ability to continue to serve our community.
Please call or email the police department for any records requests:
- Email Records Access Officer: Lieutenant Warren J. O'Brien, or call 978-264-1742
We ask that individuals call by telephone, rather than come to the police station. The front door to the police station shall be locked at all times and the lobby can only be accessed in a true emergency. If you must come to the police station please utilize the video intercom system to the left of the front door. The dispatcher on-duty will speak with you and determine the best way to assist you. Please note that this is only a temporary measure, however, we do not know how long these restrictions will need to be in place.
If you have a non-emergency matter, the dispatcher will gather your contact information and an officer will contact you via telephone. Please Note: This is for Non-Emergency matters only (such as, a past stolen item, or a scam report, etc.). Crimes in progress (such as violence, assaults, etc.) should be reported via 911 and officers will respond as they ordinarily would.
If an officer does respond to a call for service, he/she will maintain 'social distancing' and will ask that you do the same (keeping separated by approximately six feet). Officers will not shake hands or make any other personal contact unless absolutely necessary.
Please note, the Boxborough Police Department is on-duty, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. If you need police assistance, it will be provided. These temporary measures will be reviewed on a continuous basis. When, or if, changes are necessary, they will be communicated to the public. Again, The Boxborough Police Department is open for business, ready and able to respond to your needs.
