COVID-19/coronavirus Seabrook PD UPDATE

Over the past week we have continued to monitor the spread of COVID-19/coronavirus and recommended precautionary measures to avoid potential exposures to our staff.  Starting March 12th we began:

  • Limiting our face-to-face interactions with the public, when possible.
  • Not fingerprinting for non-criminal matters.
  • Not responding to VIN checks.
  • Utilizing the telephone as a primary method of taking reports
    The practice “social distancing” by our employees.

As the virus continues to spread and we attempt to maintain a healthy police force for the continuation of services we are implementing the following additional measures effective immediately:

  • The Seabrook PD is now closed to any non-law enforcement personnel.
  • Civilian vendors’ access will be limited and at the discretion of the Chief of Police or his designee.
  • While greatly appreciated, food donations, cards, etc will not be accepted.
  • We are continuing the temporary change not to accept walk-ins unless an emergency exists.

If you have an emergency call the police department at 603-474-5200 or dial 911.

For non-emergencies please call the police department at 603-474-5200 rather than walk in.  Non-emergency matters may be reported over the phone and an officer will be assigned to follow-up with you.  This applies to a variety of less serious offenses that ARE NOT IN PROGRESS.

OFFICERS WILL ALWAYS RESPOND TO CRIMES OF VIOLENCE AND CRIMES AGAINST A PERSON.

We are still patrolling the streets of Seabrook, as you would expect.  The only thing we are temporarily changing is the manner in which we provide our services not the quality of the services we provide.
