Littleton Police Department has requested that the town accept another $65,000 grant
To stay proactive against the drug problem in the community, the Littleton Police Department has requested that the town accept another $65,000 grant to assign a Littleton police officer to the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Drug Task Force and offset the cost to the town. During their meeting on Monday, the Littleton Select Board voted 3-0 to accept and expend the grant. The purpose of the AGDTF is to identify and disrupt illicit drug trafficking throughout the state of New Hampshire, which includes the Littleton area and northern New Hampshire.” The drug task force is a multi-agency collaboration with statewide jurisdiction. In January 2020, LPD entered into an agreement with the task force and assigned to it one officer in an effort to reduce the illicit drug trade and the number of overdose deaths in the community.
