The Cambridge Auxiliary Police has been selflessly serving the city of Cambridge since 1941. Originally created as a civil defense measure, the Auxiliary Unit consists of more than 20 volunteers who assist the Cambridge Police Department with traffic and crowd control at parades, festivals, road races, and other city events. The Auxiliary also conducts vehicle and foot patrols during holidays and other times as needed.

Auxiliary Officers are a great asset to the Cambridge community. We appreciate their willingness to volunteer and help give back to the community in a number of important ways.

If residents are interested in being a part of the Auxiliary Unit, please contact the Cambridge Police at
