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.
