Welcome to the Chester Police Department

The mission of the Chester Police Department, in partnership with the community, is to promote and maintain a peaceful, safe and secure environment. The Department recognizes its members as its most valuable resource, and will strive to maintain the quality of public service through committed leadership, supervisory direction, career development, and training.

National Take-Back initiative for dangerous controlled substances

CHESTER, NH – On Saturday, October 22nd , 2016 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the Chester Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public a nationwide, one day collaborative drug take-back initiative effort to remove potentially dangerous controlled substances from our nation’s homes. This national initiative will provide an opportunity for the public to surrender pharmaceutical controlled substances and other medications to law enforcement officers for destruction.

Expired, unused, or unwanted controlled substances in our homes are a potential source of supply for the increasing abuse of pharmaceutical drugs in the United States and an unacceptable risk to public health and safety.  Bring your medications for disposal to Chester Police Department 84 Chester Street Chester, N.H. 03036. No needles or liquids can be accepted. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.

Citizens are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines—flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash—both pose potential safety and health hazards.

For more information in regards to this initiative, please contact Chief Aaron P. Berube at the Chester Police Department (603) 887-2080.

 SCAMS / FRAUD 09-02-2016

Dear Chester residents,

The Chester Police Department has had an influx in scam and fraud calls recently.  The scams range from victims being told they owe the I.R.S. money to insurance companies telling you a family member was injured and in the hospital.  I ask that you carefully consider the information being relayed to you.  If it sounds to good to be true, it is probably not true.  A majority of the scam and fraud investigations we handle are unfortunately from another country.  When they are from another country, it drastically reduces what enforcement actions Unites States law enforcement can take.     

Please call the Police Department and speak with an officer if you have any questions or feel you have been scammed.    

I have attached several websites for review that provide good information and ways to protect yourself in the future.

                                                                        NEW HANDS-FREE ELECTRONIC DEVICE LAW

                                                                            BE A SAFE DRIVER, BE A FOCUSED DRIVER
What does this mean?
• No use of hand-held electronic devices capable of providing voice or data communication while driving or temporarily halted in traffic for a stop sign or traffic signal or other momentary delays
• This includes cell phones, GPS, tablets, iPods, iPads or other devices that require data entry
• Emergency calls to 911 or other public safety agencies will be allowed
• Bluetooth or other hands-free electronic devices will be allowed
• One hand non-cellular 2-way radio use will be allowed
• Teen drivers under the age of 18 will not be allowed to use any electronic devices (hand-held or not) except to report an emergency. Anyone violating this will be subject to penalties and license suspension or revocation.
• If your vehicle is not equipped with Bluetooth functionality, auto service centers can install after-market systems or over the ear devices can be purchased at retailers such as Staples, Best Buy or your cell phone carrier.

• 2nd Offense

Why is the NH Law Important?
• During the past 4 years, 116 fatal crashes in New Hampshire were caused by distraction
• The increasing use of electronic devices is fast becoming the primary distraction
• While texting, a driver is 23 times more likely to crash
• Sending or receiving a text distracts the driver for almost 5 seconds
• At 50 miles per hour, we travel longer than the length of a football field during that 5 seconds
• Even dialing a phone number increases the risk of crashing by 3 times
