Tuftonboro Police update selectmen on activities


August 14, 2014
TUFTONBORO — Chief Andrew Shagoury reported the arrest of Wolfeboro resident James Arsenault, 55, in Tuftonboro on June 2 on charges of criminal trespass and criminal mischief.

Officers were in court four days in June and responded to call outs on a welfare check, an accident, an attempted suicide and a missing person report.

2014 year to date statistics show calls for service at 1,450; motor vehicle stops at 117; summonses, 10; accidents, 16; arrests, 13; felonies, 8; offenses, 67; incidents, 77; and pistol license permits, 16. The latter number demonstrates a steep drop from the 47 licenses granted by this time in 2013.

The department received calls of concern for a horse fenced in the front yard of a residence on Route 109A. Shagoury told selectmen at their July 28 meeting that he had called the state veterinarian about the situation and was told that though the conditions are less than ideal, the care level meets the law. No shelter is required until November.

Shagoury reported also that department members have received Quik Clot and Belt Trauma Kits which can save lives on scene with the application of hemostatic dressings. They have also been recertified in taser instruction and breath test operation.
