Ride Along Program


The Truro Police Department encourages community involvement in the law enforcement process and allows interested citizens to ride as passenger observers with patrol officers. Anyone interested can download the application here.


File of Life


The file of life program consists of a card containing vital personal and medical information which is kept on the outside of a person's refrigerator door in a bright red magnetic pocket easily accessible to EMT's fire departments, police departments and other emergency responders who may need this information.  File of Life forms, holders and additional information are available at the Truro Public Safety Facility.





The Truro Police Department Reassurance Program is designed for seniors in the Town of Truro who live alone or live with an ailing spouse or relative. There are currently 18 people on our list. Seniors in the program call The Truro  Police Department each morning before 10:00 a.m. to say hello and let the department know that they are alright. If a call is not received then the dispatcher will telephone the residence. If contact is still not made, a police officer is dispatched to the residence. Anyone wishing to join our program is invited to call the police department at 508-487-8730 to sign up.
