Public Safety Requests


Public safety requests need to be submitted in writing to Police Administration. Requests can be submitted 1 of 3 ways:

  1. Via email;
  2. Dropped off at Lebanon Police Department
    36 Poverty Lane
    Lebanon NH 03766;
  3. Mailed to:
    Lebanon Police Department
    36 Poverty Lane
    Lebanon NH 03766

Once received, a request will be researched and discussed by staff to include the Police Chief, Fire Chief, and Director of Public Works. A traffic study may be completed to gather additional information. Traffic studies are generally completed within 2-weeks.

Note: Traffic studies requiring traffic count or speed trends cannot be completed December through April.

Traffic Calming Criteria

If it is a request for a stop sign, yield sign, crosswalk or speed table, please review the City of Lebanon Traffic Calming Criteria (PDF) before submitting to ensure your request meets the criteria:

  • If staff approves your request, an email or letter will be sent to you. If it is an approved stop or yield sign request, further action and adoption occurs at the City Council level. Please visit for the full listing of City Council meetings and agendas to see when they will vote on your request.
  • If staff feels further discussion is needed to include residents/business owners of the specific area of the request, a meeting notice will be sent out and a meeting will be held at City Hall and be included on the City Meetings Calendar.

If staff denies your request, you will be notified and given reasons why with possible next steps, if any.
