Barnstead Police Raise Funds For Local After School Programs

Barnstead Police Chief Paul A. Poirier is a firm supporter of after-school initiatives that are focused on helping the youth in the community to stay engaged and have fun. As the recently appointed head of the police department, Chief Poirier was made aware of the need to assist the Barnstead Elementary School with funds for the after school program, which is enjoyed by many of the students. His idea?  Make it happen as part of his community policing strategies.


Together with members of the Barnstead Police Department, more than $500.00 was raised to donate to the school program. These funds were accumulated through events such as the Barnstead Old Home Day, where police personnel ran a hot-dog stand. This was supplemented by actual cash donations from police officers who work in the town.


Chief Poirier and Sergeant Doug Trottier met with Barnstead Elementary School Principal Tim Rice and presented a check to be used by the school. “This is a small contribution to the school children from the police department”, Chief Poirier said. His plan is for additional community policing initiatives in the future.
