Joseph A. Roark

Chief of Police


Emergency 911


Traffic safety on our roads had become a major concern for the Pelham Police Department.

In past years the Pelham Police have instituted special patrols targeting problem areas. Chief Roark has assigned a team of officers to operate traffic enforcement patrols throughout town to combat complaints from residents.

Pelham has also received grants from the New Hampshire Highway Safety Agency for seatbelt check points this past summer and ranked third of all New Hampshire communities participating in the program.

As a result Pelham has been awarded additional grant money to operate these check points again. Drive safe this year and buckle up and remember, don't text and drive.


In the event of a serious traffic accident the Pelham Police Department has a  certified Traffic Accident Reconstruction Unit.

Their job is to investigate all serious or fatal motor vehicle crashes in town to determine the cause of the accident. The information and evidence gathered is not only used in the prosecution of violators but is helpful in preventing future accidents

These highly trained officers assume responsibility over the case from start to finish. They collect evidence, photograph scenes and compete comprehensive reports to be used in prosecution.
