MVPD Reaches out to Public

Mont Vernon Police Chief Kyle Aspinwall recently launched a series of community outreach efforts to help the citizens of Mont Vernon connect with their police department.

This week, Aspinwall introduced the “Good Day Mont Vernon” program so people who live alone can rest easy knowing someone is looking out for them.

As part of Good Day Mont Vernon, residents who are sick, elderly or just want a little peace of mind, will call into the Police Department each morning between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. to check in.

If the Police Department doesn’t hear from a resident by 10 a.m., they’ll call the person’s home to make sure everything’s all right. If no one answers, an officer will pay a visit to the resident to check on his or her well-being.

To participate in Good Day Mont Vernon, residents can fill out a simple form and return it to the police department. Forms are available at the Mont Vernon Police Department, the Daland Memorial Library, the Post Office and Town Hall. The program is free and open to all Mont Vernon residents.

Another service the Police Department is offering is the “House Check” program. When leaving on vacation or traveling for business, residents can have the comfort of knowing that the Mont Vernon Police Department is keeping an eye on their homes. This service can be particularly helpful for parents who are leaving teens at home alone for the first time. The program is free and available to all Mont Vernon residents. To take part in the program, simply fill out a form, available at the police station.

Finally, the Police Department has unveiled its new Web site, http://mv.mont-vernon.nh. us. Forms for all of the programs listed here are available online.

Anyone with questions, comments or concerns can contact Aspinwall at chiefmvpd@ or 673-5610.
