On behalf of the Grafton County Sheriff's Department, I welcome your interest in our department. I am honored to lead the agency that provides both statutory and constitutionally mandated services on behalf of Grafton County.
Our employees are committed to providing quality services to our residents and visitors alike. I am hopeful this website offers you an opportunity to look at our department and some of the services we provide.
It is our daily objective to prevent and control crime to make Grafton County a safe and enjoyable place to live, work, and visit. We strive to accomplish this with a proactive and collaborative approach to problem solving. We strongly encourage your involvement in assisting us with this daily endeavor.
It is my professional goal to make every effort to assure that our sworn and civilian staff receive the best training and education to enable them to serve you with competency and good character. We demand that all our staff treat people with respect, fairness and dignity in a consistent and equitable exercise of their powers and discretion.
We are New Hampshire's second largest county and our mission stresses professionalism in every aspect of our duties. Our partnership with the thirty-nine communities and those visiting our county is very important to us. Our department is dedicated to the concept of community policing with a concentration on prevention and problem solving. We operate under the philosophy that it is preferable to prevent crime than to successfully prosecute crime. Prevention of crime is one of the many keys to maintaining the high quality of life and comparatively low crime rate enjoyed by Grafton County residents.
Please feel free to contact me and let us know what we can do to better serve you in Grafton County.
Jeffrey F. Stiegler, Sheriff
