Message from
Chief Matthew Cox

Welcome to the Eastborough Police Department webpage. I am excited to serve the citizens of Eastborough as their Chief of Police. I encourage all of you to visit our website often, as my officers and I work with our web design staff to improve and update our site. I noticed that the listing of FOUND PROPERTY was very outdated. I created a more current listing to our web design staff. By keeping this list updated it is my hopes that when someone's property is found by the Police Department, it can be returned to the owner in a timely manner. This will help me, as I have limited space to store Property and Evidence.

If you didn't know, you can view the 'Crime Scene' section on our website, for a listing of crimes that have been reported to the Police Department. This is updated within one to two days after each monthly Council Meeting.

I would like to encourage all of you to take time and read the City Newsletter that will soon be arriving at your home. It will have a great deal of information that I hope everyone finds useful.

You can always contact me by phone or e-mail if you have any questions, suggestions or comments.

Sincerely,

Matthew Cox
Chief of Police
Eastborough Police Department
