- Partnership/Ownership/Membership – Greater Boston Police Council
The East Bridgewater Police Department is listed as a full member of the Greater Boston Police Council, a "law enforcement council" (LEC) set up in the 1970s to link regional police forces and share resources for policing anti-war protests. LECs in Massachusetts have played a central role in militarizing police by organizing SWAT teams and purchasing military equipment such as Lenco Bearcats and other armored vehicles.
- Partnership/Ownership/Membership – Southeastern Massachusetts Law Enforcement Council (SEMLEC)
The East Bridgewater Police Department is a member agency of the Southeastern Massachusetts Law Enforcement Council (SEMLEC). Like other Law Enforcement Councils (LECs) in Massachusetts, SEMLEC functions to increase regional collaboration between police and sheriff's departments, while organizing SWAT teams and obtaining military equipment for use by its member agencies. Set up as non-profit professional organizations, LECs have attempted to restrict public knowledge of their activities and have refused public records requests.
- Partnership/Ownership/Membership – Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)
East Bridgewater Police Department Detective Ryan Cramer has been designated as a "Task Force Officer" (TFOs). TFOs are local police officers granted the authority to perform the duties of federal law enforcement including making arrests of individuals sought by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for detention and/or deportation.
