Welcome to the
Scituate Police Department

The Scituate Police Department strives to ensure public safety by providing responsive, professional police services to residents, businesses and visitors by promoting community based policing in collaboration with citizens, schools and municipal officials.

It is HIGHLY recommended that all visitors use the Greenbush MBTA parking lot and available shuttle bus to travel to the Harbor area. Please pay attention to Officers on duty at the event and do not hesitate to approach an Officer to answer any questions you may have.

Please remember that consumption of alcoholic beverages in public is prohibited in the Town of Scituate and will be enforced throughout the event. This is a wonderful event and the Scituate Police Department will be working diligently to ensure the safety of all particpants and visitors.


The Scituate Police Department would like to thank the community, and in particular the residents and merchants of Humarock, for helping to make this year’s July 3rd celebration a safe and memorable success.

While historically, the Scituate Police Department has cleared the large crowds of mainly underage youths from Humarock Beach each July 3rd night, this year, the Town and the Department took measures to curb dangerous and illegal activities before they began.

Our officers received incredibly positive feedback from Humarock residents as families had an opportunity to enjoy their celebrations in a dramatically safer environment. For the first time in years,the Department had no arrests during the night. Our hope is to continue restoring the family friendly
atmosphere in Humarock on July 3rd as is the case throughout Scituate’s many other beaches.

We would also like to thank our law enforcement partners, the Marshfield Police and Plymouth County Sheriffs, as well as the Scituate Fire Department, for their collaboration and hard work over the holiday weekend.

The members of the Scituate Police Department wish to extend a Happy 4th of July to all of our residents and guests. May the remainder of your holiday weekend be safe and enjoyable.
