Hide, Lock, Take

I am calling from the Tewksbury Police Department on behalf of Chief Sheehan to make residents aware of a recent upswing in nighttime vehicle break-ins. We ask that residents secure their vehicles when left unattended by locking doors, closing windows, and activating security systems when possible. We are also asking residents to secure their valuables out of plain sight.

Lastly, we ask residents to assist us by reporting any type of neighborhood suspicious activity observed, such as suspicious individuals and vehicles, no matter how insignificant you feel it may be. A partnership between the residents and the Tewksbury Police Department is imperative in our strategy to reduce this type of crime. Thank you for your time and cooperation.

We are available to the community 24 hours a day at (978) 851-7373 for non-emergency assistance, and at 9-1-1 for emergency assistance.

The Tewksbury Police Department urges any citizens who suspect criminal activity to call the Dispatch Center @ 978-851-7373.  If you wish to remain anonymous please call the Tip Line @ 978-851-0175 or send an email to tewks_detectives@tewksbury-ma.gov.
