Message from Chief Scott P. Chamberlin
This year, the Town of Amherst Police Department will be celebrating its 100th Anniversary. Founded in 1923, we are proud to have served the Town of Amherst and Village of Williamsville over these many years. With this milestone event, we are reminded of what an honor it is to serve such a wonderful community. Our members make this community their home, and they take great pride in serving their friends, neighbors, and families each and every day.
Throughout our rich history, service has been the hallmark of the Amherst Police Department. We make it our mission every day to provide outstanding service to our community. We take great pride in going above and beyond for those we serve. And we believe that commitment is what makes us stand out from other law enforcement agencies. Though law enforcement is our primary function, we take our mission far beyond that as we partner with community stakeholders to build relationships which help make our community a better place to live and work. We build bridges, extend our hands, and look to solve problems with those we serve.
As we talk about what we stand for as an agency, we cannot forget those who served before us. Those fine men and women set the standards of excellence, service, and community engagement that we try to live up to every day. We stand on their shoulders as we try to carry on, and build upon, the traditions and legacy that they established. We are forever grateful for their example, and we strive every day to live up to the lofty standards they have set.
Today, what makes the Amherst Police Department second to none, is the amazing men and women who serve their community every day. Their love for this community, and pride in serving it, shines through every day in their hard work and dedication. It is an absolute honor to lead such a fine group of professionals. Their work ethic, professionalism, compassion, and dedication to duty is truly inspiring to witness.
Finally, I would like to thank the community that we serve for your unending support. YOU are why we are here and who we work day and night to serve each day. The countless letters and social media posts of support that we receive every day are an inspiration. We cannot thank you enough for your support, it means more than you know. As we celebrate 100 years of serving you, we look back with great pride on what we have become. And we look forward with great hope at the possibilities ahead to grow and build upon what we have accomplished. We come to work every day striving to serve you better. We are excited for what changes and improvements the next 100 years will bring. What will not change is our commitment to providing you outstanding service.
