There have been several changes at the Saco Police Department over the last year with the appointment of a new Police Chief and Deputy Chief of Support Services, as well as new Police Officers and Dispatchers. 

National Night Out

The National Association of Town Watch (NATW) sponsors a national community-building campaign on August 1st, 2017 called "National Night Out".

The National Night Out event promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer and more caring places to live. 

On August 1st from 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM, the Saco Police Department will be hosting National Night Out event in conjunction with the Parks and Recreation, and Fire Departments.  This event will be at Memorial Recreation Fields on Summer Street in Saco. 

Join us for a picnic dinner, kid's games and activities, a movie in the park, an officer meet and greet, and more family fun.

Help Make Saco Streets Safer

The City of Saco is partnering with the Maine DOT and Bicycle Coalition of Maine to hold a public meeting on July 25th from 6:00-8:00 PM in the Saco City Hall Auditorium. 

Let's take our first steps together to tackle our city's most dangerous streeks, intersections, and crosswalks. At this event, we would like to address the recent spike in pedestrian/vehicle crashes. We would like to hear your thoughts and ideas about how we can improve the safety of our streets together!

Come join us as we take advantage of Saco's beautiful location and rich history, all while enjoying the summer weather. 

The complete trail is roughly one mile long winding through the historic mill buildings and crossing the river into our sister city, Biddeford. Tours will proceed rain or shine, so dress accordingly.
