Chief William M. Breault announces there will be two opportunities for the public to provide input about the Dover Police Department during the upcoming re-accreditation process.

The Dover Police Department has been internationally accredited by the Commission for Accreditation of Law Enforcement Agencies, also known as CALEA, since 1988 and was the first police department in New Hampshire to achieve accreditation. Since then, CALEA has periodically conducted reassessments and the Dover Police Department has been successfully re-accredited each time.

On Monday, Dec. 9, 2019, CALEA will visit Dover to assess the Dover Police Department for the 10th time. This site-based assessment occurs every four years and will be conducted over the course of three days. Part of this assessment will include two opportunities for the public to provide input to the assessment team. The input can be provided through a telephone call-in session or at a public hearing.

The call-in session will be held on Wednesday, Dec. 11, 2019 from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. The phone number for this session is (603) 516-7752. The public hearing will be held on Wednesday, Dec. 11, 2019 at 5:30 p.m. in the training room at the Dover Police Department, 46 Chestnut St.
