A $600 bill from the Northumberland Police Department to the Northumberland-Stark-Stratford SAU 58 School District for having a police officer provide a special detail and presence at Groveton High School following a threat by a student has rankled some school board members and residents. During the July 18 Northumberland Select Board meeting, some residents voiced concerns that police might not respond to future incidents at the school if the bill is not paid. Northumberland Police Chief Peter Pelletier gave his reasoning for the bill and said Northumberland police will always respond to the school when called.
