BOW — Bow and Dunbarton Police Departments, in conjunction with Goffstown Police Department's Communication Center announced a Medical/Mental Health Registration Event to be held on July 17 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

The Medical/Mental Health Reigstration program will take place at Bow High School and allows any citizen to provide information regarding themselves, a family member or friend so that police can be better prepared to effectively assist an individual that may be suffering from a mental health emergency or medical condition.

The program is intended to aid Emergency Dispatchers and Police Officers in their response to calls for assistance involving individuals with mental health or medical impairments in order to provide the best possible level of service.

Registration may also include key lock box information in the event there is an emergency at your home and first responders need to make entry into your home.

All information provided is kept on file and confidential. It will be accessed only by emergency personnel engaged in a crisis situation.

If a juvenile is reported missing by a parent or guardian and the parent or guardian has completed registration paperwork, law enforcement officers will be aware of de-escalation techniques, triggers, stimulants, physical descriptors and the most-likely places where the juvenile may go. This will allow police to locate the juvenile faster and more efficiently.

Mental health professionals and representatives from various community outreach programs will be in attendance.

Any questions about this event may be directed to Dunbarton Police Sergeant Christopher Remillard at chrisremillard@gsinet.net, Bow Police Sergeant Arthur Merrigan at amerrigan@bownh.gov or Goffstown Police Communications Specialist Heidi Roberge at hroberge@goffstownnh.gov.
