Police Department


Regretfully, the Alton Police Department is no longer able to trade or handout patches. We are truly honored that so many people are seeking a symbol of our agency, but we just can’t keep up. The costs associated with replacing the patches is not something the agency can absorb any longer. In order to address the issue, The Alton Police Association has purchased a number of brand new patches from our vendor. If you would like a patch please send a request to the Alton Police Association at Po Box 240 Alton, NH 03809 with $6.00 and a new patch will be mailed to you.
