Sturbridge Police instruct two self defense personal empowerment courses: The first is RAD for females ages 12 and up, is a rape aggression defense program; the other is RAD for kids, it is a personal empowerment program for kids ages 5-10, teaching topics such as stranger danger, fire safety and out and about safety.
Adopt a Cone Program – This is a voluntary program for the citizens of Sturbridge who are in an area where speeding is habitual. Each volunteer resident will be issued a traffic cone and asked to place that cone on a designated spot on the roadway in front of their residence thus bringing attention to a passing driver to please slow down. The volunteer places the cone out in the morning and brings the cone back in before dusk. The volunteer stores the cone at their residence until the end of the program.

With the continuing difficult times; and the cause and effect resulting societal problems we will be faced with: such as increased domestic problems, larcenies and theft, I would like residents to feel secure knowing that their police department is dedicated to providing the finest police services available while still being fiscally responsible without sacrificing public safety. I would again like to thank all of the members of the Sturbridge Police Department who continue to work very hard providing the best service anywhere. I am proud to be your Police Chief and honored to lead one of the best police departments in the Commonwealth.
On Behalf of the members of the Sturbridge Police Department, I remain respectfully yours,
Thomas J. Ford, III Chief of Police
