Get a crash or law report
- Fill out the form below
- Wait 3 business days
- Pick up your report at the police station for a fee of $5 per law report or $25 per crash report. We accept exact cash or checks made out to Town of Bridgton. We are not able to accept credit/debit cards at this time.
We do fingerprinting on an “as available” basis, meaning that we do allow walk-in requests, but the completion of these are based on an officer’s availability. If they should be on a call, for one example, then they are not able to complete the fingerprinting at that time. We do not make appointments, as they are impossible to keep based on calls. Office hours are M-F from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. There is a $15 fee for non-residents and a $5 fee for residents, which covers up to 5 cards. After 5 cards, there may be an additional fee charged. We ask that you bring in exact cash or a check made out to “Town of Bridgton” as we don’t accept credit/debit cards at this time.

- Mission & Code of Ethics
It is the mission of the Bridgton Police Department to safeguard the lives and property of the people we serve with integrity, to reduce crime and the fear of crime, and to enhance the quality of life in our town by working in partnership with the community.
Code of Ethics
As a law enforcement officer, my fundamental duty is to serve the community; to safeguard lives and property; to protect the innocent against deception, the weak against oppression or intimidation and the peaceful against violence or disorder; and to respect the constitutional rights of all to liberty, equality and justice.
I will keep my private life unsullied as an example to all and will behave in a manner that does not bring discredit to me or to my agency. I will maintain courageous calm in the face of danger, scorn or ridicule; develop self-restraint; and be constantly mindful of the welfare of others. Honest in thought and deed both in my personal and official life, I will be exemplary in obeying the law and the regulations of my department. Whatever I see or hear of a confidential nature or that is confided to me in my official capacity will be kept ever secret unless revelation is necessary in the performance of my duty.
I will never act officiously or permit personal feelings, prejudices, political beliefs, aspirations, animosities or friendships to influence my decisions. With no compromise for crime and with relentless prosecution of criminals, I will enforce the law courteously and appropriately without fear or favor, malice or ill will, never employing unnecessary force or violence and never accepting gratuities.
I recognize the badge of my office as a symbol of public faith, and I accept it as a public trust to be held so long as I am true to the ethics of police service. I will never engage in acts of corruption or bribery, nor will I condone such acts by other police officers. I will cooperate with all legally authorized agencies and their representatives in the pursuit of justice.
I know that I alone am responsible for my own standard of professional performance and will take every reasonable opportunity to enhance and improve my level of knowledge and competence.
I will constantly strive to achieve these objectives and ideals, dedicating myself before God to my chosen profession . . . law enforcement.
