BPD MISSION STATEMENT
"To protect and serve the community with integrity and professionalism"
Welcome to the Bristol Police Department website. The City of Bristol has a population of approximately 65,000 people and covers over 27 square miles. The police department consists of 121 sworn police officers and 25 civilian personnel. The department has been serving the community since 1893.
STATE ACCREDITATION AWARD: In 2014, the Bristol Police Department was awarded state accreditation by the Connecticut Police Officer Standards & Training Council (POST). State accreditation is a process through which law enforcement agencies demonstrate excellence in management and service delivery by complying with state accreditation standards.
The Bristol Police Department and the Bristol Salvation Army have partnered for the Mobile Red Kettle campaign during the holiday season. More people turn to the Salvation Army for help at Christmas than any other time of the year. A gift of any size will help give those most in need the support they need to start the new year with fresh hope for the future. Please consider making a donation. Thank-you.
