About Us

The Bureau of Capitol Police is a law enforcement agency responsible for the safety of the people and the security of the property and buildings that make up Maine's seat of government.  Areas of responsibility include the State House, the other State buildings and properties within the Capitol Area campus, and the properties on the eastside of the river within the old Augusta Mental Health campus. In addition, since early 2014, a unit within the Bureau of Capitol Police has been dedicated to specifically service the law enforcement, safety and security needs at the Riverview Psychiatric Center.
