Public Safety Warning: Needles

RPD is reminding citizens should you come across a discarded hypodermic needle, do not touch it or remove it. So far this year we have had 4 calls to remove found needles. All four instances the needles were discarded along the roadside as if being tossed out a car window. To ensure a safe removal, please call the PD and we will remove and dispose of them.

Coffee with the Chief

On May 13, at 10 am the Police Department will be open for a Coffee With the Chief meeting. The Chief will be available to answer any questions or address any concerns, and receive any feedback from the community. This will be the first of many open discussion forums with the Chief in the future.  

Political Signage

It is illegal to remove or damage any political sign.

Should you have a complaint about the placement of a sign, please contact the Rollinsford Police Department.

There are significant penalties should anyone remove or damage a sign without authorization.
