The Chief's Message

I would like to personally welcome each and every visitor to the all-new Johnston Rhode Island Police Department website.

The intent of overhauling the old site was to strengthen the bond between the community and the department by way of information sharing, education and the expansion of police services in the modern, digital age. Hopefully, our professed motto of “Working Together – Making a Difference” is clearly evident by the new features that this site offers, and that the users will benefit greatly from its enhancements. The vision for our website does not end with just what you currently see today, but will manifest itself with the enhancements and additions that we plan on implementing in the coming months and years. I hope that the users of this site find it informative, easy to navigate, relevant and in the finest tradition of the Johnston Police Department. Let this site serve as an example of the professional and diligent efforts displayed by our police officers on a daily basis, and may it also establish an informational sharing vehicle between the department and community at large. I encourage you to navigate around our site and give us feedback on the “Contact Us” page. We truly value your comments as we continually strive to further enhance the professionalism and efficiency of our department and this site. Thank you for visiting.

Richard S. Tamburini
Chief of Police
