Police investigation

The Pittsfield Police Department is aware of the situation involving social media posts that were made today about our school. We are actively investigating this incident and are working directly with the Pittsfield School Administration, the students parents and the Merrimack County Attorneys Office. The student will not be allowed back to school until we have completed our investigation and the school has conducted its own administrative process. We will also have an increased police presence at the school tomorrow as a precaution and to provide a safe environment for the students and staff while we continue the investigation.

Police department public notice

The Pittsfield Police Department has reached a staffing level that will not allow us to continue 24/7 police coverage, so we have been working with numerous outside agencies to maintain the 24/7 coverage and safety in our community to the best of our ability. You may see some of these outside agencies helping in our town, covering open shifts on detail. We are working diligently on this situation and will do everything we can to provide continuity of police coverage for our community while we fill our vacancies and re-staff our department.

Respectfully,

Jeffrey M. Cain
Chief of Police
