The Stratham Police Association, through the years, has assisted the Stratham Police Department financially in order for the police department to purchase weapons and other types of equipment to be used by officers in their official capacity.

To that end, and specifically by way of this instrument, the Stratham Police Association is formally donating and passing on any interest to the Stratham Police Department the following list of property that we may have donated or helped purchase over the years. We are issuing this formal donation letter to assist the Select Board with facilitating any process required by law to formally accept the items that we either purchased or donated to the Stratham Police Department.
