POLICE

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

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

The Derry Police Relief Association, Inc., paid for pur-
chasing and installation of monitor in Police Cruiser so that
after 2 A. M. the Officer in crusier can receive calls from
State Police Headquarters, Concord, N. H. by radio. This
gives the department twenty-four hour service by radio as
well as telephone.

Signed : HOWARD W. CAMPBELL,

Chief of Police.
