On Saturday morning October 21, 2017, the Yarmouth Police Department received a 911 call reporting a rape that had occurred in Yarmouth.

Yarmouth Police Patrols Officers and Detectives conducted an investigation that led to an arrest of a person for two counts of Felony Rape.

The person was held in custody at Yarmouth Police Department Headquarters on $10,000 Bail and transported to the Barnstable District Court this morning for arraignment.

Due a 2014 change in Massachusetts law, we are unable to release the name of the person that was arrested.

Domestic Violence and Sexual Assaults occur in many communities. If you or anyone you know needs help, please call us anytime 24/7.

In addition, please reach out to our friends at Independence House anytime for free and confidential support.

Independence House Hotline:
The Independence House hotline is staffed 24-hours a day, 7-days per week. Advocates provide immediate response to any physical or emotional crisis arising from abuse or sexual assault.
During office hours, individuals may also meet with advocates to discuss their circumstances and obtain resources that may be available to help.

Our Dog Watch Training Sessions have been such a huge success that the Yarmouth Police Department, and our partners; the Yarmouth Division of Animal Care and Protection, the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Mid Cape Pet and Seed Supply, and Yarmouth Neighborhood Crime Watch, will host another Yarmouth Police Dog Walkers Crime Watch training session today Monday, October 23rd at 6PM at YPD Headquarters.

There are dozens, if not hundreds of dog walkers throughout the community at all times of the day, all days of the week, in all weather conditions, walking their beloved pets. Dog Walkers Watch trains these individuals how to effectively observe and report suspicious activity.

Dog Walkers Crime Watch is a fantastic community policing program that requires no commitment beyond an individual’s regular routine and helps us all keep our neighbors and our community safer.

Anyone who walks a dog in Yarmouth that would like to participate in this innovative program is asked to come to Yarmouth Police Department Headquarters for a 1 hour training session.

Feel free to bring your dog and all of our 4-legged graduates will receive a coupon to Mid Cape Pet and Seed Supply and a one-of-a kind Yarmouth Dog Walkers Crime Watch blue bandanna.

Anyone with questions is asked to contact Patrol Officer Mary Gibney at mgibney@yarmouth.ma.us, or Deputy Chief Steven G. Xiarhos at sxiarhos@yarmouth.ma.us

This program is completely free and we look forward to seeing you and your dog here at YPD Headquarters TONIGHT at 6PM!
