The construction of the new fire station has begun. As can be imagined, they need some room to work over there, so we have had to make some parking changes. Please see the map below if you are coming to the police station, it will show you where to park (green spaces) and the walking path (green arrows), as well as the handicapped space (white space). We tried to do the best we could to accommodate everyone, and we apologize for any inconvenience.
The 2017 Walpole Junior Police Academy will host two week long programs, which will consist of daily sessions, held Monday through Friday. The Academy will begin at 8:30 a.m. and student officers will be dismissed at 2:30 p.m. Student officers will attend classroom sessions, which will include lectures, role-playing and demonstrations provided by Walpole police officers specializing in areas of law, drug awareness, tactics, crime scene techniques, and first responder skills. Field trips are also part of the curriculum and transportation will be provided. Students will be required to bring their own lunch and snacks daily.
Since the morning schedule will include being organized into formation and physical training activities, including running, student officers must wear comfortable athletic attire and footwear. There is a $25 registration fee, which will include two academy uniform shirts, a cap and water bottle. The shirt and hat shall be uniform of the day while attending the Academy.
Any Walpole resident, who attends a Walpole school, and has completed the 6th grade and is enrolling in either the 7th or 8th grade is eligible to attend.

When asked how well the WPD does in providing services to the community, 96% answered either excellent or good. The citizens provided us with an overwhelming response, with over 3,000 surveys returned. View the complete survey by clicking on the link below.
