The Bloomfield Police Department serves as the primary law enforcement agency for the citizens, business people and visitors to the Town of Bloomfield.  The department also serves as the Town's Department of Emergency Management, Local Traffic Authority, and administrative oversight of Bloomfield's Volunteer Ambulance Association.

Services are provided through four Divisions, three of which are commanded by Police Lieutenants, and the fourth commanded by a Director.  The department also participates in shared policing services with area police agencies, including Emergency Services, Fatal Accident Investigations, Hostage Negotiations, Major Crime Investigations, and traffic enforcement.


In November 2015, the Bloomfield Police Department was officially recognized as a fully-accredited police agency at the CALEA National Conference in Miami, Florida. The BPD, therefore, now has the distinction of being recognized as reaching a level of excellence that only 4% of departments in our nation have achieved. This honor is the successful culmination of efforts to seek National Accreditation with the Commission of Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA). Created in 1979 through the combined efforts of four major law enforcement organizations:  the International Association of Chiefs of Police, National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives, National Sheriffs' Association, and the Police Executive Research Forum, CALEA is widely recognized as the nation's official accreditation commission. The Commission's purpose is to develop law enforcement standards and to establish and administer the accreditation program. The accreditation program establishes the process for a law enforcement agency to voluntarily demonstrate how they meet professionally-recognized criteria for excellence in management and service delivery.


The Bloomfield Police Department is committed to improving the quality of life for all people in our community by developing community-oriented partnerships to prevent crime, uphold the law, and provide a safe and secure place to live, work, and visit.


The Bloomfield Police Department is committed to the philosophy of community-oriented policing. All employees recognize public service as the foundation of police work, and dedicate themselves to serving our community through our operating principles and philosophy. We will create an atmosphere of excellence and dedicate ourselves to constant improvement in order to improve our service to the community, increase pride in the organization, and establish a reputation for excellence in law enforcement.
