                          E 9-1-1 Mapping


The Division is currently working in your town to collect all road and addressing information. This will enable us to provide exact location information to dispatch agencies should an emergency arise.

This process involves going to each structure in the town and collecting the actual X,Y coordinates, all posted addresses, and any new roads that we do not currently have in our data. If addresses are not clearly posted, we may need to verify resident or utility information. Should the need for this arise, we will always be in a clearly marked state vehicle and all employees have ID’s and carry information cards with the bureau contact information.

After the collection process is complete we work closely with the town to ensure that the information gathered is complete and accurate. Upon acceptance by the town, paper and digital maps are generated for the town.

If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact the E 9-1-1 Mapping Department at (603) 527-2069.

    The Exeter Police Department has taken a step further to help keep harmful, unused medications out of the hands of children as well as out of the environment.   Open Source Research shows that every day 2,500 kids abuse prescription drugs for the first time.   Seventy percent of people who abuse prescription pain relievers say they got them from friends or relatives.

    2014 Champions for Children
    Exeter Police Det. Ryan Veno was honored by the Child Advocacy Center of Rockingham County (CACRC) for his investigations of crimes against children and his work on the NH Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.

    The CACRC works with police, child protection services, the county attorney, victim advocates and health providers to prevent abuse and keep children safe.  The center helps children and non-offending family members during their darkest moments, when they have been victimized and don’t know where to turn. At these times, children and families need to figure out how they are going to prevent future abuses, to survive the trauma and to seek justice.

    The CACRC operates on a shoestring budget, while serving approximately 300 to 350 clients a year. The state, National Children’s Alliance, the Rockingham County Attorney’s office and local police chiefs contribute about $23,000 of the $250,000 budget. The rest comes from individuals, organizations and businesses who feel it is important to protect children and to remove those who abuse them from society.

    Because the Child Advocacy Center has so little money it relies heavily on its community partners and it honored a number of those partners at its Champions for Children breakfast Monday.

    The breakfast provided a rare opportunity to meet some of the men and women who work heroically behind the scenes to protect our children.

    The men and women honored, by the nature of their work, are rarely in the spotlight. Most receive little pay and even less recognition because they need to protect the privacy of the children and families in crisis.
