A policy manual cannot possibly address every circumstance encountered by law enforcement professionals. The Yarmouth Police policies are based on constitutional law and a “best practice” philosophy.
The Yarmouth Police Department policies are subject to frequent updates based upon changes in State or Federal law and/or best practices. As changes occur, the most current policies will be posted to the web page. Please find links to some of our current policies and procedures in policing below.
Please contact Chief Kevin Lennon with any questions or for further information.
