Police Department

The Bar Harbor Police Department's primary mission is and will continue to be to protect and serve our community to the greatest extent possible, to protect life and property, and prevent crime by vigorously delivering the best possible services when crime occurs.


The Bar Harbor Police Department is made up of 14 full-time officers. There is one chief, two lieutenants, one sergeant, and ten patrol officers. These officers work year round, covering all of Bar Harbor's jurisdiction and enforcing state laws and town ordinances. The police will also provide events (such as taking back unwanted prescription drugs) in order to create a cleaner Bar Harbor. There is a collection point in the lobby available 24/7 for unwanted prescription drug drop off.

Bar Harbor has four dispatchers on their staff as well.
