Emergency 911

Gun Locks

The Topsfield Police along with Project Childsafe developed by the National Shooting Sports Foundation and supported by a U.S. Department of Justice grant, are working to help ensure safe and responsible firearms ownership and storage of firearms. Through the Childsafe program, putting a lock on safety in your home, the Police department has cable-style gun locks. These locks are free to the public along with a firearm safety pamphlet and may be picked up at the Police station. To obtain one of these locks contact the station at 978-887-6533 and set up a time to stop by the station. If anyone is interested in receiving free firearm safety reminders from Project Childsafe via e-mail they can sign up at www.projectchildsafe.org









Essex Regional 911 Alerts Information Links

As of January 1st, 2018, the Town of Topsfield will switch systems for emergency alerting to Essex Regional 911 Alerts. Essex Regional 911 Alerts is a state-of-the-art infrastructure, administered by Essex Regional 911, in partnership with SwiftReach Networks utilizing their Swift911 platform. Topsfield residents, employees, and affiliates continue to have the same capabilities for emergency notifications by telephone and now have expanded access to alerts by other means including phone calls and social media. Topsfield residents, employees, and affiliates are able to also subscribe to other communities that have signed onto the platform. Residents will be able to setup their own accounts and manage their messaging preferences as they desire. Subscribers to the former Nixle system: please be aware that if your contact information exists in the previous system, it will not be transferred into the new system.
