The Support Services Bureau of the Belmont Police Department encompasses the School Resource Officers, Detectives, Communications and Community Programs and is commanded by Captain Stephen Akerstrom, the Executive Officer and Support Services Bureau Commander.
School Resource Officers
School Resource Officers (SROs) are responsible for the patrolling of three public schools. The SROs enforce laws and investigate crimes that occur in the schools, but act as mentors and resources to the more than the 1,500 people within the Shaker Regional School District. The SROs teach programs such as D.A.R.E. and other safety programs.
Detectives are responsible for the investigation of all major crimes, coordination with outside local, state and federal agencies and the registration of all sex offenders.
Communications division is responsible for dispatching and monitoring the activity of the on-duty Belmont Police Officers. These civilians are extremely important to the operation of the department and the safety of the officers.
Community programs help the Belmont Police Department serve our citizens in a more efficient manner by raising and maintaining our high standards. Our community programs include such programs as our Law Enforcement Explorer Post, blood drives, senior meals, women safety seminars, gun lock programs to name a few.
