The Town of Marlborough is a partner in the State Police Resident Trooper program. Through the Resident Trooper program, small towns are offered the resources and infrastructure needed to support having its own town police officers to work alongside a State Trooper that is primarily assigned to work in one town.

Whenever the Resident Trooper or town police officers are not on duty, a patrol Trooper from the State Police barracks (Troop K in Colchester) responds to any calls for service in Marlborough, providing 24 hour coverage, seven days a week.

Your Resident Trooper and Town Police Officers embrace a community policing philosophy, by being engaged with the residents regarding community issues, proactively addressing quality of life issues for our residents, and diligently investigating crimes that affect the town and its residents, big or small.
