Greetings and welcome to the Dighton Police Department Website. My name is Robert MacDonald and I am the Chief of Police. The Dighton Police Department is currently comprised of 18 highly trained sworn officers and 8 civilian support staff. I am proud to be part of a professional law enforcement organization that consists of dedicated, committed, and honest Police Officers. We are privileged and humbled to protect and serve the citizens of the Town of Dighton.
In these pages, you will learn of the many services and programs that the Dighton Police Department provide. All of our resources are aimed at just one goal: making the Town of Dighton a better and safer place for all of the people who live, work, or visit here. The Dighton Police Officers are problem solvers; a force that works with citizens, businesses, the media and other public agencies to improve the quality of life in Dighton and surrounding areas.
