Good Morning Berly,
All of the information that you are requesting can be found at the Epping Library. A good point of contact would be Ben Brown. You can reach him at 603-734-4587. You can access all town reports there. If there is any information you can't get at the library, please feel free to resubmit the request. If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask. Have a great day!

Please see the following request for records. Thank you for your help with this request.
This is Ben Brown from Harvey-Mitchell Memorial Library in Epping, NH. I was asked to gather Town reports for you from the years 2000-2020 to see the financial records for the Epping PD. I've gotten 2000-2008 and 2013-2020 together as pdfs and attached them to this. The one year I've been unable to find at all is 2012. I'll keep looking for a copy of that to send along. I have hard copies of 2009-2011 as well. I could send you the physical copies or scan them if necessary. The scan would take a while though since I have to go a page at a time and the reports are over 100 pages each.
As for the hiring and employment data for the PD you requested, I do not have any of that information here at the library. My guess is the only place that has that is the Police Dept themselves or possibly the Town Hall.
