The Londonderry Police Department would like to acknowledge its civic partnership with Charles George Companies of Londonderry New Hampshire.
Five holiday seasons ago the Londonderry Police Department was contacted by management from Charles George Companies, hereafter CGC. CGC explained to management of the Londonderry Police Department that they would like to make some sort of donation to the police department and asked what they could do for us.
After some discussion it was decided that CGC would purchase and gift to the Londonderry Police Department a “bite suit” to be used within the K-9 Program as a training tool. This was a tool that was not budgeted for and was subsequently 100% funded by CGC. The police department received permission from the Town Manager’s Office to accept the donation and so it began.
The next year in December another phone call was received by police management. It was CGC again asking what the police department could use that may not have been budgeted. The department’s Traffic Accident Reconstruction Team, hereafter TAR, had experienced a lot of call outs and some near misses when members of the TAR Team were almost struck by motorists while investigating serious accidents. TAR investigations are very labor intensive and must be done no matter what the weather. CGC purchased high visibility insulated jackets for the entire team. Barricades and safety cones were purchased the following year and GPS units the year after that.
This year the Londonderry Police received yet another call from Chuck Bolianites, Vice President and General Manager of CGC, who simply asked “What do your officers need?” A discussion lead to CGC purchasing a much needed but not budgeted for Armor Shield to be used in certain high risk incidents.
Police management as well as many others in this agency have come to realize that Charles George Companies have truly partnered with the Londonderry Police Department and shown that they are committed to the community of Londonderry in which they conduct business.
The staff and members of the Londonderry Police Department would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank the owners, managers and employees of Charles George Companies, Inc. for their continued support and civic partnership.
