Somers is protected by resident state troopers who look to provide safety to the town through professional service. The office asks any resident with an issue that would require police service to call the department. The office also does fingerprinting for state or local applications and provides pistol permits. The permit application may be filled out online, but it is still required to be printed, signed and notarized. Upon request, homes and small businesses can be inspected to identify aspects that can improve their personal security. Emergency police services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, by calling 911.
