 9-1-1 Calls



Change in Policy

The New Hampshire Bureau of Emergency Communications has changed their retention policy with the respect to 9-1-1 calls.  The Bureau is now retaining 9-1-1 calls for one year.  Previously, the Bureau retained calls for only 180 days.  9-1-1 transcripts have proven to be invaluable in cases where liability is contested.  Often a 9-1-1 call is made by an eyewitness to an accident who is not listed in the police report.  In addition, sometimes the plaintiff calls 9-1-1 and the substance of those calls can be invaluable.  To make sure the 9-1-1 calls are saved you should send a letter to:

State of New Hampshire
Attn: John Latson
Bureau of Emergency Communications
110 Smokey Bear Blvd
Concord, NH 0330

Your letter should provide as much information as possible, including the date, time, and location o the accident.  Please let us know if we can help you obtain 9-1-1 transcripts and recordings.  A subpoena, under most circumstances, is required.  

Call Larry Getman if you have any questions or need assistance at 603-634-4300 or       

Please feel free to contact Larry Getman at (603) 634-4300, extension 703 with anyquestions about this change in policy.
