Drug Awareness Program

Yarmouth Police Department Mission Statement

Our mission is to make Yarmouth the Safest Community in the Region, we will work in partnership with the men and women of the Yarmouth Police Department and the citizens of Yarmouth to educate the community, reduce crime, and improve the quality of life for everyone who works, visits, or resides in the Town of Yarmouth.

Many communities in the United States and right here all across Cape Cod struggle with issues related to drug dependence. Over the past few years, Yarmouth has experienced an upsurge in the use of heroin and prescription Opiods such as Oxcycodone, Hydrocodone, and Fentanyl. This drug use is directly linked to most crimes that occur in our community.
