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. Currently it consists of 3-Sergeants, 1-Corporal
and 4-Patrol Officers and a Utility Officer.

The current department house is on the riverside of the Town Municipal
buidling. The Police Department hired an Administrative Assistant in
September of 2016. Citizens can once again stop at the police department
8:30 am to 2:00 pm and speak to someone at the window as was previously
done when it was a full-time dispatch center until 2004. If the assistant is
not at the window, citizens can still request an officer by using the
red phone outside the River Street side of the building which automatically
calls the Oxford County dispatch and they will dispatch an officer.
Citizens can still call (207) 364-4551 or (800) 733-1421 to request an officer.
