The Walpole Police will begin a new public service for residents of Walpole, starting in January of 2024. We will be compiling a Do Not Knock List containing addresses of residents that would like to opt out of door to door solicitation by those individuals that have been issued a solicitor’s permit by the Walpole Police. This list will be compiled annually, so if you register for this list you will have to renew your registration annually, each January 1st.
If you would like your residence to be added to the town’s Do Not Knock list, email your name, street address, apartment number and a phone number to DONOTKNOCK@WALPOLEPD.COM. You will receive an email confirmation once your residence has been added to the list.
In accordance with Massachusetts General Law, the following unclaimed and abandoned property will be destroyed or sold by means of an online auction by the online police auction website PROPERTYROOM.COM beginning on or after March 9, 2022.
The items to be auctioned are in as-is condition and are in no way guaranteed or under warranty by the Walpole Police Department or the Town of Walpole. Any person who believes they may have unclaimed property being held by the Walpole Police Department (or is currently up for auction), should contact the department immediately at 508-668-1212 to determine if they have a claim to the property. Proof of ownership will be required.
In an effort to continue our public safety partnership with citizens and businesses, the Walpole Police Department is offering a security camera registration program. The Walpole Camera Registry Program allows residents and business owners to voluntarily register the locations of their video surveillance systems with the Walpole Police Department. When a crime occurs, police will be able to identify the locations of nearby video cameras to obtain potential video surveillance. If necessary, police would ask Walpole Camera Registry Program participants to check their private video surveillance systems for a specific date and time for video that may show activity involved with a crime, and, if they so choose, participants can voluntarily provide copies of video footage to police for investigative purposes.

The Town of Walpole has a telephone Emergency Notification System. We use this system to notify residents and business owners in emergency situations, as deemed necessary. As such, if you receive a call from the Town of Walpole, the Walpole Fire, Police, Health or Public Works Departments, please listen to the message carefully.
This system also has the capability to contact you through the following options: your listed home or business phone or your cell. At this time, emergency notification will only be made to your listed home or business address.
