Town of [_Name_] Police Department
Re: NH Rebellion Walk
Dear [_Name_] Police Department,
This is a courtesy notification to inform your department that the “NH Rebellion” campaign off the non-partisan, non-profit organization Open Democracy is planning a peaceful walk of approximately [_#_] people, which will be coming through your town on [_Date/Time_]
This walk continues in the tradition of Granny D, a local hero from Dublin, NH, who walked across the country at the age of 90 to promote integrity in democracy. NH Rebellion has organized several of these walks across the state of New Hampshire over the past two years, all without incident.
We are not asking for formal police support, and are notifying you as a courtesy, so that your dispatch and any patrol officers on duty that day will know who we are and what we are doing. We ask that you post this in your office so all of your staff are informed.
Safety is of the utmost concern to us, and we are equipped with proper safety equipment (reflective vests, warning signs/cones for traffic, first aid kits, flashers, walkie talkies, water, etc) and have familiarized all the walkers with safety procedure (traffic patterns and traffic/pedestrian laws and precautions, inclement weather plans, emergency procedure, etc.) We have multiple support vehicles for the walkers, a morning safety briefing, and an organizer in charge of safety. We will keep you immediately advised of any issue arising that affects safety, either to the public or ourselves.
We look forward to walking through your town, and cooperating with you!
