The Scituate Police Department was made a permanent force on July 9, 1970, by Town Council ordinance.  It was authorized a Chief, Deputy Chief, a Captain, a Lieutenant, three Sergeants and  as many Patrolmen as the Council should from time to time determine necessary.

The present table of organization includes a Chief, Deputy Chief, one Lieutenant, five Sergeants and ten Patrol Officers.  Additionally, there are five full time civilian employees, including a secretary and  four dispatchers, who are also responsible for fire and EMS dispatch.  There is also a part-time Computer/Records Manager and a part-tme weekend Dispatcher.  Animal Control includes one full-time and one part-time Animal Control Officer and a Town-owned facility.  Future staffing plans for the Department include a detective position. 

Records show that since 1923 seven men have served as Chief of Police in the town.  Prior to that time police services were handled by the Town Sergeant.
