Welcome to the Meredith Police Department's web page. The Town of Meredith, which was officially incorporated on June 16, 1768 and went from being named 'New Salem' to 'Meredith', is a historically unique destination. Nestled in the foothills of the White Mountains and enjoying the luxury of several lakes, the largest being Lake Winnipesaukee, the Town of Meredith encompasses a total area of 54.2 square miles. And, taking care of protecting, maintaining community awareness and the preservation of order, are the men and women of the Meredith Police Department. We actively patrol approximately 100 miles of paved and dirt roads, as well as taking an active role in emergency response to several islands in our jurisdiction. We work closely with the Belknap County Sheriff's Department, the New Hampshire Fish & Game Department and the New Hampshire Marine Patrol, as well as maintaining a well working relationship with all law enforcement agencies within the State. It is our duty and pleasure to be able to provide those emergency services to our residents and visitors alike to make living here, working here and playing here safe and inviting.
