Motorcade up River Street to the cemetery

On Saturday 5/2/2020, the Town of Alstead and the larger community laid to rest our first Chief of Police Erwin Ward. The family of Chief Ward had a small ceremony at the Fenton & Hennessy Funeral Home in Bellows Falls followed by a funeral at the Maple Side Cemetery on Mechanic Street in Alstead. Chief Ward’s final resting place is in a fitting spot where he can still be watching over Millot Green and the center of town as he did when he was the police chief. A very big thank you to the following agencies for assisting the Alstead Police in honoring Chief Ward: The New Hampshire State Police, Cheshire County Sheriff’s Department, Marine Patrol, Winchester Police, Charlestown Police, Marlborough Police, Walpole Police, Hanover Police, Rindge Police, and the Ambulance and Fire Departments from Alstead, Langdon and Walpole for all being part of the 30-vehicle motorcade giving Chief Ward a proper escort!
Rest in Peace Chief Erwin Ward

Consumer Complaints | Consumer Protection Bureau | NH Department of Justice

Concord, NH -- Attorney General Gordon J. MacDonald urges all of New Hampshire’s aging adults to be aware of and to take steps to protect themselves from scams related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Additionally, all people are encouraged to assist aging adults in protecting themselves from scams to the fullest and safest extent possible.

In recent weeks, scammers have used the uncertainty and isolation brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic to attempt to obtain personal identifying information and assets of aging adults across the country. Below is a list of some of the scams currently aimed at aging adults, as well as recommendations on what to do if you encounter them. These can include: Social Security Scams (SSA has not shut down), Medical Scams (there is no current "cure" for the COVID-19 virus), Stimulus Check Scams (DO NOT provide any information over the phone) and Fake Charity Scams (we all feel badly for laid-off people).

Anyone receiving scam communications related to Covid-19 or otherwise, is encouraged to make a report to the New Hampshire Consumer Protection Hotline:
o Phone: 1-888-468-4454, Email: [email protected]
o Website: www.doj.nh.gov/consumer/complaints/

Economic impact payments: What you need to know | Internal Revenue Service

Almost daily, Law Enforcement is made aware of Scams surrounding the confusion and uncertainty of the COVID-19 crisis. The latest notification from the NH Attorney General's Office relates to the Stimulus Payments.
The IRS wants the public to know that most people do not need to do anything in order to receive their stimulus checks and that Government Agencies are NOT sending out emails to obtain personal information.

Consumer Complaints | Consumer Protection Bureau | NH Department of Justice

The latest fraud related to the COVID-19 crisis targets those who are unemployed and trying to secure benefits. Many people have never applied for Unemployment Benefits before and may be unfamiliar with the procedure.

Please read below and if you feel you have been the victim of such a scam contact the Department of Justice any of the following ways.
To report a scam, contact the Consumer Protection Hotline:
• Phone: 1-888-468-4454
• Email: [email protected]
• Website: www.doj.nh.gov/consumer/complaints/ (click on the link)

How to Protect Yourself from Unemployment Benefit Scams:
• Hang up the phone if you are uncomfortable. If you previously registered for New Hampshire unemployment benefits at www.nhes.nh.gov/ call back the Unemployment Assistance Hotline at 603-271-7700
• Never provide any personal information such as your social security number or date of birth without verifying the person with whom you are communicating
• Never provide any banking information without verifying the person with whom you are communicating;
• Never deposit suspicious or unexpected checks into your account. Remember that even if your bank makes funds available from a deposit that does not mean the check is good. It could still be fraudulent or forged and you could be responsible to replace those funds;
• Never wire funds to strangers. Make sure you know the person very well before sending them money through a wire service like Western Union or MoneyGram;
• Do not open any unsolicited emails or attachments if they are not from a familiar or trusted source or contain suspicious subject lines or no subject line at all even if from a recognized sender;
• Beware of emails that link to a website that lacks details about who is running the company, where it is based or does not have a phone number to contact the company; and
• If the offer appears "too good to be true", it probably is.

Understanding the Complaint Process

03/28/2020

Hello Everyone,

I wanted to thank you all for how cooperative and community minded you have been through this incredibly difficult time. The challenges we all face locally, nationally and globally are unprecedented! Therefore, we as public safety and medical professionals (EMTs, fire personnel, nurses, doctors, dispatchers, police etc...) just like all of you are feeling our way through the quagmire of information and almost daily changes to our way of life. We are faced with the same decisions; when to leave our homes, and if/when the virus strikes close to home, what will we do, how will we handle it etc…

Other than toilet paper... the local stores have food and supplies and we have access to them. The Stay at Home Order does not stop us from going out and doing what we need to do for our families. In general, people may participate in activities required for necessities such as grocery shopping, medical care, outdoor exercise, employment at essential businesses, etc. Click the link below to find the full list of essential businesses. You are strongly encouraged to follow the Emergency Orders put out by the Governor. These measures will hopefully get us through this more quickly. The future is obviously not clear to me or anyone else, but the longer this drags out, the more difficult our collective lives will be. Please, let's continue to work together toward the common goal of getting back to normal.

Yesterday there was a "Letter to Law Enforcement" released from the NH Attorney General's Office to help us all get direction on the Governor's "Stay at Home Order" (See the link below). It outlines the law and how it all works with regard to Emergency Orders and enforcement. There is also a Flow Chart that is designed to help law enforcement interpret the Stay at Home Order. You will notice that it is not the wish, goal or priority to arrest, detain or otherwise charge people for violations of these orders. The community at large wants voluntary compliance so we can move on. The way I read and understand the direction of the Governor and the AG's office is one that encourages education and peaceful resolution to the challenges that may come up in the weeks ahead. No one is going out to try and step on our rights or liberties, these orders are all TEMPORARY. We will face these difficult times together as a strong community and we will soon have our lives back. Please try to understand the extremely difficult position that Law Enforcement is in, nationwide on all levels. We just want to support the communities we live and work in and go home at the end of our shifts. Our department believes law enforcement in general will do everything possible to keep education and discretion as a primary objective.

Stay healthy, safe, vigilant and conscientious of what our friends, neighbors and relatives are going through. Help one another where possible and stay home as much as you can. If you have any specific questions that are not answered in the links please call 2-1-1.

As always, common sense is authorized and should be used. We thank you for exercising caution and good judgment while complying with these temporary Emergency Orders.

We can do this!

Steve Murrell
Chief of Police
