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.

Police department phone lines

The Police Department has been notified that the phone system at our dispatch center, the Merrimack County Sheriff’s Office, is having a system wide problem which has effected our local phone system.  If an officer or administrative assistant is in the office we will answer the phone.  If you receive no answer on the office line, 435-7535, this means there is no one in the office and the officers are out on the road.  If you receive no answer on the after-hours non-emergency line, 435-7211 (this goes straight to dispatch), please use 911, explain the phone system is down and ask to speak to an officer.  911 is a State system on a separate line and will work.  The Merrimack County Sheriff’s Office has advised they have Fairpoint, TDS and their IT department working to resolve the problem as quickly as possible.  We apologize for any delay or inconvenience this has caused, we will update as soon as we are notified the problem as been fixed.
