The Strafford Police Department functions under the sole administration of Chief Scott Young. Chief Young is in turn responsible to the general oversight of the Town Selectman. He is further responsible to the taxpayers of Strafford in terms of preparing an annual budget and proposing warrant articles on an as-needed basis.
In 2006, a budget of $376,000 was submitted and approved by the people of Strafford. You can view or print a copy of that budget below. Also in 2006, the Strafford Police Department submitted warrant articles to add an additional full-time police officer and purchase a police cruiser. Both warrant articles passed. The annual letter from Chief Young to the Town outlining the need for both warrant articles is also accessible below.
