POLICE

The Police Department has four Regular Officers, the
Chief, and an Officer who works two and one half days on
vacant shifts.

A working schedule is shown below so one can readily
see how the department functions.

Crime is on the increase which is quite evident by the
trouble other departments are having surrounding Derry.
By quick action two major crimes in Derry were solved and
those involved brought before court and convicted. With
the present working schedule the department can handle any
emergency immediately.
