We are proud of Waltham’s own Motorcycle Officers Jeff Fogg and Rich Giordano for their commitment to the community. Both Officers along with Officers from NEMLEC escorted Arlington PD and a wagon full of toys into Boston on behalf of the Katy Murphy Foundation. The Foundation assists families with children suffering from cancer and other diseases who find it difficult to make ends meet during the holiday season. Officer Fogg and Officer Giordano make us proud on a daily basis, but particularly at this time of year. For all those less fortunate than you at this time of year, please keep them in your thoughts, and to people like Jeff and Rich....thank you for you service!

Press release

We would like to Thank Russo's for the great fruit basket. Much appreciated. Happy Hollidays and Merry Christmas.

Thanks to Councilor Diane Leblanc for the wonderful Christmas gift bags that she shared with the station. We appreciate the holiday cheer!! Happy holidays from the WPD!

ATTENTION WALTHAM RESIDENTS! PHONE SCAM! Scammers are cloning this Department's phone number (781-314-3600) to use as part of a phone scam. Someone identifying him/herself as an officer will tell you that you have a warrant, and you need to correct it by calling a different 800 number (844-298-6928). When you call the 800 number, you'll be asked to pay off the warrants, either by wiring money or by paying in gift cards. We at the Waltham Police Department: 1. Won't call to give you a heads up you have a warrant; why spoil the surprise? 2. don't accept iTunes, Bitcoin, Visa Giftcards, or any form of payment actually. We are partial to baked goods however. 3. find this kind of scam particularly offensive, because it often preys on the elderly. Please know that we will never contact you under such circumstances. If you feel something isn't right, state "I'm going to call the station right now to confirm that you do work there Officer." A real police officer will completely understand! Be safe and smart this holiday season. Merry Christmas!
