Chief of Police: Gary Hebert
The Piermont Police Department will provide responsive, competent, and professional law enforcement service in partnership with our community, to all citizens of the Town of Piermont in a fair and equitable manner.
The Department is comprised of one full-time officer and one part-time patrol officer which is currently vacant. I am continuing to search for a qualified candidate. We are dedicated to serving the needs of the community for the Town of Piermont. Even though it is not a 24/7 department, someone is always available to respond to a citizen’s call for service.
Chief Hebert serves as the full-time Patrol, Prosecutor and Administration for the Department. There is no set schedule when he is available. However, Chief Hebert is on call most of the time when he is not working a shift. If he is not available, the New Hampshire State Police (NHSP) will be on call for the town.
When the NHSP is on call, please be aware that the Town of Piermont is not their primary responsibility and it could take some time for them to respond, so we ask that you be patient.
If you feel it is an emergency, please call 911
If you have need of an officer and it is not an emergency, you may call the Piermont Police Department at: 603-272-9351 or 603-728-7917, or the Grafton County Dispatch at: 603-787-6911.
The Piermont Police Department has seen an increase in IRS (Internal Revenue Service) and other scam phone calls. The scammers have used many types of scams to include; citizens being told they have not filed their taxes for years and voicemails threatening legal action if the person did not call back. They will also try to trick you into sharing private information or sending money and may even know a lot about you.
The IRS website reports that if you owe taxes, the IRS will first contact you by mail only, not by telephone and would never do the following which are tell-tale signs of a scam:
- Ask for credit card, debit card or prepaid card information over the phone.
- Insist you must pay your taxes using a specific payment method.
- Demand immediate payment over the phone or take enforcement action directly after a phone conversation.
