About Rumford, Maine:
We are located in the western foothills approximately one hour from the New Hampshire border on U.S. Route 2. The Town of Rumford was first settled in 1779 by Jonathan Keyes. Rumford was the 123rd town in the District of Maine, which at that time was still part of Massachusetts. The original Charter was signed on February 21, 1800 making Rumford an official town. Rumford currently has a population of approximately 6,000 and borders one side of the Androscoggin River, while the town of Mexico, Maine borders the other.

The Rumford Police station formed in 1904 consisted of 4-officers and a working Chief. Today, the department is made up of a Chief, Captain and eight patrol officers. Due to recent budget issues they consist of 3-Sergeants, 2-Corporals and 3-Patrol Officers.

The current department house is on the riverside of the Town Municipal buidling and previously contained a full-time dispatch center until 2004.
The dispatch center was open during business hours Monday through Friday from 2007 until July 12th, 2013. Dispatching is now 24 Hours through the Oxford County Regional Communications Center
(1-800-733-1421) in South Paris. Rumford PD remains a temporary holding facility (Jail) for Northern Oxford County.
