Chief's Corner

Chief Tavares Welcome to the official website of the Marshfield Police Department.  It is our goal to provide top quality policing to our residents, business owners, and visitors.  It is our goal to address every concern brought to the Department’s attention to the very best of our capabilities. 

Marshfield is a coastal community that is situated halfway between Boston and Cape Cod.  Marshfield’s five miles of public seashore along the Atlantic Ocean has attracted people to the town for generations.   Comprised of approximately 25,500 year round residents the population swells in the summer months as we welcome our seasonal population.  We have worked hard to develop strategies and programs to ensure the safety of all who are in the town.   We are always looking for ways to be proactive and to improve our job performance. 

I hope that you find this website helpful and I welcome you to use the resources located within.   Please remember that the Marshfield Police Department exists to serve you.  If you have a question or concern and it is important to you please do not hesitate to call the Marshfield Police Department.


Phillip A. Tavares
Chief of Police
