On October 24th, 2004, our department went through a reorganization.
As a result our department no longer has police officers dispatching.
Our department was one of the last if not the last department in the State of
Maine to have police officers as dispatchers.

In an agreement reached with the Police Department Union, one Sergeant
position was eliminated leaving one Sergeant to assist with Investigations
and the remaining two Sergeants being road supervisors. This restructure
better serves the citizens of the Town of Rumford.

For seven days a week from 7:00 A.M. to 7:00 P.M. citizens of the Rumford Area
can continue to call the regular numbers and will be
answered by a Highly Trained Rumford Area Civilian Dispatcher.

From 7:00 P.M. to 7:00 A.M. the municipal doors will now be locked.
If you wish to speak to an officer you need to either call 9 - 1 - 1
if it is an Emergency, or call the regular number 364-4551, which will be forwarded to the
Oxford County Regional Communication Center or dial 1-800-733-1421.
Upon hearing a recording of options, Press 1
this will immediately forward you to a Dispatcher.
All three ways will be manned by civilian dispatchers who are
highly trained to serve and assist you. If you have a complaint or
wish to speak with an officer please use one of these three means.
