-Chad Russell, Andover Fire Chief
As today's policing becomes more challenging, and demand of city resources increases, the ANDOVER POLICE & FIRE FOUNDATION can provide funding to train and equip police officers; assisting us in providing the highest level of service to our citizens. The forethought of the AP&FF organization to include a mission to provide for families immediate needs in the event of a Line of Duty Death, and to assist in continuing education for our young adults is a dynamic way to commit to the long term stability of our community. We are thankful for the dedication to excellence of our leaders in the Andover community.
