Excerpt from Somersworth, New Hampshire, Annual Report, 1988-1989
In terms of crime solved, the department made 857 Criminal Arrests compared to 655 during the same period last year, an increase of This increase being attributed to the rising population in the City of Somersworth as well as our surrounding communities.
On the brighter side, the department made dramatic headway in streamlining our records system by entering the Computer Age. On November 1, 1989, a state of the art computer system went on line which will eliminate the need for recording and retaining by hand the many records and files used each day.
The computer will also store pertinent information for future use in such areas as parking tickets, pistol permits, burglar alarms and bicycle licenses, just to name a few. Hopefully, the introduction of the computer will now free up some of the manpower resources in 1990 to be used in additional programs.
Crime Prevention would have to be the main theme for 1989. The department took a hard stance on the drug problem plaguing the community. With an increased budget for apprehending drug abusers, we were able to increase arrests in this category threefold over the prior year. A Drug Abuse Resistance Education or program as it is most normally referred to was put in place in our school system. Is a nationally recognized and acclaimed program taught during regular class hours at the pre-high school level. The course explains the dangers of drugs and the effect on our society, in general, prior to any actual exposure of drugs which normally comes at the high school level. With a combined effort of eradication and education, we are doing our part to achieve a drug free society.
With the help of two grants from the New Hampshire Highway Safety agency, the department received funds for additional d.w.i. Patrols and an additional radar unit for speed enforcement. This dual effort of speed and drunk driving enforcement helped in bringing the total incidents of motor vehicle accidents down 8% in 1989. This was considered a substantial drop considering the increased traffic that the area has been experiencing.
