Chief King

Welcome From the Chief of Police

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Stratham Police Department website where you can learn about our programs, and find out what the Department is doing to make this community a safe and better place to live.

The Stratham Police Department is a full-service law enforcement agency responsible for providing police services to the Town of Stratham with its 7600 residents, and thriving commercial base. The Police Department has 12 sworn police officers, and administrative staff who provide police coverage 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  We have a strong commitment to working with the community in order to prevent crime and help solve community problems.

The Stratham Police Department strives to provide the highest standard of public service. It is our goal to maintain the small town feel, while providing effective, modern and up-to-date police services.  It is important that we hear not only from those of you who are happy with the services we provide, but also from those of you who still seek satisfaction. We invite you to ask us questions, bring us your complaints and give us your input, as that will help us provide you the type of service the Town deserves.

As Chief of Police, I am honored to have been chosen to serve this community. I deeply appreciate the support and confidence that has been extended to me by the elected officials, the municipal management team, and residents of this town. I consider it a privilege to work alongside the members of your Stratham Police Department and together, we are vested and committed to providing a professional, and community oriented police service.  As police officers in today’s ever-changing world, we fully understand how important community policing becomes towards providing the residents, business owners, and visitors of Stratham, a safe and caring community that they can enjoy, thrive in, and raise their families.

Warmest Regards,

Chief Anthony King
