Patrol

The Laconia Police Department handles a variety of calls for service throughout the year. Often these calls total over 26,000 in totality in the course of a year. Officers are trained through the New Hampshire Police Academy and in addition are brought through a rigorous twelve-week department training program.

Officers are trained to handle calls ranging from civil or non-criminal complaints to violent crimes. The Department offers its residents, businesses, and visitors services beyond that of what one would think a "typical" officer handles. The patrol section of the Operations Division consists of officers who are:

  • Certified Technical Accident Reconstruction Experts who are on the Belknap County Accident Reconstruction team
  • Certified Operators who belong to the Belknap County Special Operations Group (BSOG)
  • Mountain Bike Certified Officers to included a certified instructor
  • Motor Officers
  • Officers trained on computer crime

The Department is a progressive agency and its patrol section is no different. We are constantly striving to have the most professional and technically capable officers available to the community.
