2016 Annual Town Reports

The 2016 annual town report is available below in pdf format.

2016 town report


This past week Governor Sununu signed into law Senate Bill 12, thereby allowing anyone who can legally own a gun, to carry concealed without requiring a permit to do so.

We expect the Department of Safety will be providing new conceal carry forms (out of state reciprocity requirements) by next week.

For those with permits currently in review or pending, we will be contacting you shortly when the process is complete.  In the meantime, under the new law, you may carry your gun concealed immediately if you legally own it.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

How to reach your police

A concern has been expressed to me that some citizens have come to the station and experienced difficulty reaching a police officer.  I want to apologize for this and assure the public we are committed to serving you to the best of our ability.  We recently lost our administrative assistant so there may not be anyone in the office during the day to answer the door or phone.  Your police department is also currently being down sized and losing full time police officer positions which may add to this challenge and impact our availability.

We will make every effort to make ourselves available to the public and limit the reduction in services, but please be patient.   If you come to the station and no one answers the door there is a gray call box to the right of the door.  If you pick up the phone it will connect you with our dispatch center who will send an officer to meet you.  If you call and no one answers the phone please leave a message or call 435-7211 to reach our dispatch center directly.  We currently have office hours Monday and Tuesday 1:00pm-6:00pm.

I apologize for any inconvenience you may experience, we remain committed to serving you and will continue to evaluate ways to better serve you.


Chief Jeffrey M. Cain
