Welcome to the Lincoln Police Department Online!

Our Mission:

"The purpose of the Lincoln Police Department is to uphold the law fairly and firmly; to prevent crime; to pursue and bring to justice those who break the law; to keep the peace, to protect, help and reassure the community: and be seen to do all this with integrity, common sense and sound judgment.

We must be compassionate, courteous and patient, acting without fear or favor or prejudice to the rights of others. We need to be professional, calm and restrained in the face of violence and apply only that force which is necessary to accomplish our lawful duty.

We must strive to reduce the fears of the public and, so far as we can, to reflect their priorities in the action we take. We must respond to well founded criticism with a willingness to change"

  Bears and Birdfeeders
 

NH Fish and Game

March 13 at 7:32am

Bear Alert - We normally say to take down, clean and put away bird feeders by April 1st, however, it is evident that bears are already becoming active in some areas. Bear damage to bird feeders is a common and growing spring complaint. Don't let it happen to you - be proactive and take them down now to avoid problems. And remember, a fed bear is a dead bear!
