The men and women of the Tilton Police Department work extremely hard to bring closure to your cases. Last year we made arrest in two separate armed robberies of convenient stores in the downtown area. Tilton Police Detectives also worked very hard to solve the armed robbery of Tilton Kay Jewelers Store at Tanger Outlets, in which a robbery crew from Los Angeles California committed three violent armed robberies in New Hampshire over a 3-month period. The suspects were eventually charged and convicted of the Tilton Kay Jewelers armed robbery, Hannoush Jewelers armed robbery and the Northeast Credit Union armed robbery.
The Tilton Police Department was also proudly recognized by the New Hampshire Retail Merchants Association as the “ 2012 Law Enforcement Partners of the Year” and recognized and asked to be keynote speakers at the National Coalition of Law Enforcement and Retail Annual Conference in Dallas. In 2014 the Tilton Police Department was recognized by the New England Organized Retail Crime Association in Worcester Massachusetts for agency and case of the year award. Through dedication and a partnership with New Hampshire retail merchants, we have been able to identify and arrest several multi-state organized retail crime groups who targeted New Hampshire. These groups included a nationwide counterfeit check and identity theft ring from Philadelphia and a east-coast based organized retail crime ring from Brooklyn New York who had been stealing toner ink cartridges from Staples, Target and Office Max for a couple years. In that case the suspects stole hundreds of thousands of dollars in office products from Maine to Florida before being caught in Tilton.
Each year we also continue our efforts with highway safety education and enforcement to reduce accidents and keep our roads safe. We partner in several highway safety initiatives throughout the year, which focus on the leading causes of accidents such as distracted driving and or operating under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
We also continue a constant effort towards reducing the level of illegal drug activity in the community. Through prevention, education, statewide partnerships, investigations and arrest we believe we are making a difference. We pride ourselves in being proactive and work very hard to reduce illegal drugs in our community.
The Tilton Police Department and Tilton Police Explorers also continue to help support all community and charity events throughout the year, which help senior citizens, Special Olympic athletes or families who are less fortunate or in need.
Lastly, I am very proud of all of my staff for the incredible job they do each year and the accomplishments they have achieved.
We will always continue to work hard, providing the best possible police service to protect the community. Please feel free to stop in and meet with me about your neighborhood, any issues you might have or simply say hello.
Thank you again for all your support,
Chief Robert Cormier
