A message from Chief Michael Carignan on COVID-19:
I’d like to take a minute to address the public concerns regarding COVID-19. The Nashua Police Department is continuing to respond to calls for service. We are working closely with Nashua Public Health, Nashua Fire Rescue, AMR Ambulance, and other local and State partners to ensure the safety of our members while maintaining the level of service that Nashua residents are accustomed to.
If the situation changes, we may take additional measures to maintain safety and minimize exposure to provide our high level of service to the community. If you call Nashua Police, you may be asked some additional screening questions by our call takers. You will most likely be asked to step outside to speak with Officers and you might notice that the Officers maintain a social distance. These measures are designed to assist with our increased safety protocols. If for some reason you see police personnel wearing different styles of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), you should not assume that the COVID-19 virus is present on a call. PPE items include gloves, gowns/coveralls, masks, and eye protection. While we have a very important job to do, we also need to do our part to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, protect the community, and keep our members safe. Please keep up to date with COVID-19 at www.nashuanh.gov Thank you.
Please remember, this is an evolving incident and one we have not had to deal with before. I would like to ask that everyone show, patience, respect and maturity in dealing with each other. Let us all be role models on how we can come together as a community and work together to get through this.
Chief Michael Carignan
