Chief's Welcome

A Message From Chief Olsson


Thank you for visiting the Hingham Police Department's website. I am truly honored to serve as Chief of this great department. The Hingham Police Department has a proud history of serving a town that is rich in both culture and tradition. As someone who was raised and lives in Hingham, I care very deeply about the quality of life here.

The officers of the Hingham Police Department are men and women of integrity, character and courage. We are committed to providing a high level of professional and courteous service to our community. Our officers understand that to be successful, we must work closely with community stakeholders in our efforts to strengthen trust and reduce crime. Our Department also constantly works to improve efficiency through the use of technology and innovation in order to provide vital core services in a timely and professional manner. Some of our recent innovations include the use of social media (Facebook, Twitter, EMass), License Plate Recognition technology, AFIS fingerprinting and updated Computer Aided Dispatch systems that provide patrol officers links to surrounding law enforcement agencies.

It is an exciting time for our Department as we move forward. Working together with the community, we can continue to make Hingham a safe place to live, work, and learn. I would also like to encourage you to bring your family and friends to visit Hingham and share its rich historical and architectural heritage, its cultural resources, scenic landscapes and water views. We are located in the greater Boston Harbor and the city is accessible by Ferry and Trains. 
Chief Glenn Olsson
In closing, I would like to encourage you to further explore the great work of the Hingham Police Department through our website, social media, or by saying hello to one of our officers in the field. They stand ready to protect you, assist you, or just provide a polite "Hello!" Thank you, Glenn Olsson Chief of Police
