The Manchester Police Department now sits in a brand new facility right at the intersection of Route 141 and…More Manchester Road. The new building that was dedicated in September 2009 is state of the art and open 24 hours a day. The building also houses the Manchester City Jail.
Chief Tim Walsh says his department celebrated 50 years of service in 2010. He describes his 39 officers as sincerely interested in providing a quality service to the community and taking a professional approach to do so. Walsh says his department is also always looking to help local charities.
On average, eight to ten Manchester police officers are out in the community at any give time.
