New Hiring Process 2023




It is a pleasure to welcome you to the Newington Police Department web page. Our department is excited about the almost daily advances that are occurring in electronic technology and look forward to future enhancements.

The Newington Police Department is a relatively small service-provider agency with jurisdiction throughout the Town of Newington, New Hampshire. We serve a residential population of less than 1,000, but we are also responsible for a large commercial-industrial area and the related employees and consumers.

We are committed to providing superior services to all persons within our jurisdiction and strive, through continual training and education, to improve as much as we are able, consistent with the limitations placed upon a municipal agency.

I hope that you will view the other pages of our web site which will address the history of the department, the components which make up the Newington Police Department, and some of the activities in which we become involved. If this department can be of service, please do not hesitate to contact us via email, telephone, or through the U.S. mail.
