Winter is Here

Dear Wentworth Residents,

Once again winter has arrived and with it comes cold temperatures, freezing rain, and snow covered roads. Please be prepared for these conditions and make sure that your vehicle has the correct tires for winter travel, your windshield washer fluid is topped off, and try to maintain always having at least a half a tank of fuel in your vehicle to help prevent fuel lines from freezing. You also may want to have some items in your vehicle in case of an emergency. Here are a few suggestions that may help you in the event of a road side emergency.

Extra Blanket or Sleeping Bag
Cell Phone Charger
Warm Hat and Gloves

These items may help you, or, someone else in the event of a roadside emergency. Safe travels.

Fund Raising Scam

Dear Wentworth Residents,

The Wentworth Police Department has conducted an investigation regarding recent e-mails that have been sent out to the public that has been determined to be a new type of scam.

The e-mail states that it is a fund raiser from an organization called FUNDLY. and is titled,

                                           Encourage Tasha

The e-mail has a logo on it from the New Hampshire Department of Health And Human Services and it is trying to solicit funds for a young girl by the name of "Tasha". The e-mail represents itself as having been sent by, or, is in some way associated with the New Hampshire Department of Health And Human Services

It shows a picture of a young female child and states that she has a medical condition that cannot be taken care of in the United States so she needs to raise funds so she can go to a specialist in the UK.

Please be advised that I have verified with the New Hampshire Department of Health And Human Services that this is a scam. Do not send these people any monies.

Please simply delete the e-mail and do not respond to it in any way.

Thank You
Chief Wallace Trott

Follow Up On Dog Licenses

Dear Wentworth Residents,

The town of Wentworth has sent out notices to remaining residents who have still not licensed their dogs. This is a New Hampshire state statute, not a town ordinance, so it needs to be adhered to. I have as well posted a previous notice on our website, this being my second, in an attempt to try and get this matter resolved as amicably as possible.

I have also recently sent out written notices, and, followed up with phone calls. It is "NOT" our intent to issues summons and or have to follow up with warrants, our intent is to simply remind our residents that this needs to be taken care of so that no further action will be required.

I know that a lot of residents have come in and licensed their dogs since having received my letter, I want to say a sincere "Thank You" to those of you that have done so, and, I want to remind and encourage those who have yet to do so, to please come in and complete the process.

Thank you in advance for helping me take care of this matter.

Respectfully, Chief Wallace Trott

Unlicensed Dogs

Dear Wentworth Residents,

Please note that if you have not licensed your dog you need to do so ASAP. We have been tasked with issuing summonses for unlicensed dogs and unanswered summons will be followed up with warrants. I am asking that you address this accordingly so that we don't have to take a preventable unnecessary action such as issuing summonses and warrants. It is also cheaper for you to license your dogs than pay fines, penalties, and then license them on top of that.

Thank you,

Chief Wallace Trott
