We are very grateful to have been a part of recent tributes to healthcare workers on the front lines helping fight the COVID-19 pandemic at some of our local medical facilities. As part of the First Responder family, we know how important it is to support each other in this time of crisis and how beneficial it is to the physical and mental well-being of the citizens in our communities to see the support and caring that can shine through during these dark times.

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

SCAM ALERT - STIMULUS CHECKS

Concord, NH -- Attorney General Gordon J. MacDonald is warning about a wave of COVID-19 related scams surrounding federal stimulus payments. These scams target consumer vulnerability by attempting to capitalize on the anxiety naturally arising from current events.
The public should always be vigilant with respect to potential scams. However, during these challenging times, heightened awareness is essential. The Attorney General urges the public to use common sense and caution to protect against scammers.
Stimulus Payment Scams
The United States Congress recently passed a large COVID-19 relief and stimulus package that promises to provide financial relief to many Americans. Scammers have recently attempted to use the promise and anticipation of stimulus payments to acquire personal identifying information [PII] from unsuspecting victims.
In a recent example of how scammers are trying to use the anticipation of stimulus payments to collect PII, emails that appeared to be from the United States Treasury Department were sent by scammers claiming that the recipient was selected as one of the first to receive a stimulus payment. The phony email requested that the recipient provide PII including phone number, date of birth and profession in order to receive a stimulus payment.
What you should know:
 The Internal Revenue Service recently released guidance informing the public that most people do not need to take any action in order to receive stimulus payments.
 Government agencies are NOT sending out emails asking for personal information in order to receive funds or other pandemic relief opportunities.
How to protect yourself:
 Any request via a phone call, text message or email for personal identifying information, or any other information as a prerequisite for receiving a stimulus payment should be heavily scrutinized.
 Do not engage with callers or emails from unrecognized sources.
 Do your homework, ask questions and use the IRS website for accurate information: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/economic-impact-payments-what-you-need-to-know
 New Hampshire people who receive requests for information in exchange for a stimulus payment should contact the Consumer Protection and Antitrust Bureau of the Attorney General’s Office.
Stay Informed:
 For up-to-date information about the COVID-19 outbreak in New Hampshire visit: www.nh.gov/covid19
 For more information about Scams and how to protect yourself, visit: www.doj.nh.gov/covid-19-scams/

To Gain a greater understanding of presumption's regarding highway speed and speed limits.

The New Hampshire Departments of Safety and Transportation, along with the New Hampshire Chiefs of Police Association have established a collaborative work group to address the issue of excessive highway speeds and the culture of speeding on New Hampshire streets and highways. As part of that effort, we have created a brief survey meant to gather data related to drivers’ understanding of and attitude toward speed, speed enforcement, and other speed related issues. The survey data will be used to develop strategies for engineering, enforcement, and education efforts to reduce the number of speed related crashes, especially those that result in injury or even death. The survey should take just a few minutes and can be found at the link below:

Pedestrian Safety

• In NH, there have been 7-traffic related fatalities in 2020. 2 involved pedestrians. It’s up to everyone to share the road safely. Equal respect, Equal responsibility. #roadresponsibility #pedestriansafety

"Everyone is a Pedestrian"

Whether it be in a parking lot, crosswalk, or on a road, everyone is a pedestrian. In 2016, there were 5,987 pedestrians killed in traffic crashes in the United States [a 9% increase from 2015], which equates to a death every 1.5 hours.
Pedestrian safety is crucial to know for both pedestrians and motor vehicle operators.


Some helpful Tips for Walking at Night

• Wear light-colored clothing and reflective clothing or vest to be visible.
• Use a headlamp or flashlight to light up your route.
• Be predictable – make a practice of staying on one side of the path rather than weaving randomly from side to side.
• Use crosswalks when available.
• Walk on roads single file – especially on roads with curves and heavy traffic.
• Hang up. Eyes up. Distracted walking/driving is dangerous for pedestrians and motorists.
• Layer up. Stay warm and layer up.
• Drivers –Make sure to look before opening your door into traffic, oncoming bicyclists or pedestrians.
• Drivers – slow down and never drive impaired.

This past weekend, Sergeant Pappalardo gave a presentation to a local church about their new emergency and critical incident response cards they will be using in their church that he helped create. This local Church asked for assistance with helping prepare for any type of critical incidents that could arise including an active shooter mitigation and response plan. Sgt. Pappalardo was instrumental in helping them devise a plan and pamphlet for their facility. He also brought in some of our active shooter response instructors to speak with their planning committees.

The Rockingham County Sheriff’s Office and Sheriff Massahos are committed to helping with pre-planning and response to active shooting and other critical incidents in schools, businesses, houses of worship and places of public gathering all throughout Rockingham County.

If you want any assistance with pre-planning, please message or call the Rockingham County sheriff’s Office and we can assist or put you in touch with our partners with the Department of Justice, NH Homeland Security or local Police Departments.

From our family to yours, have a Merry Christmas and a safe and wonderful holiday season.

Great job on the Chronicle episode. The staff represented the 5-star with excellence!
With constant posts here on Facebook and newspapers about shortages in Police recruiting, I wonder if the Sheriff's office would have an interest in a Law Enforcement Explorer Post. I can link you to the contact at the BSA to make it happen.
Thanks for the reminder and be safe!
Yall wack 😂😂😂 why dont you find a bigger problem then Marijuana
Hello Sheriff's Department. Thank you for all you do. Everyday you put your life on the line to help take care of citizens. Some days you must see the worst of the worst, and for some of you the negative impact of those memories may never go away. I know that some of you men and women also served in the military prior to working at the Sheriff's Office. I am a therapist in Plaistow & want to let you know that I provide FREE trauma therapy to all First Responders, military and veterans. There's a lot of shame and stigma in asking for help, but my treatment is confidential, no insurance and no paper trail! check out TraumaticStressTherapy.com for more info...or my page of the same name. Thank you for your daily services to my community!
