the renowned Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center). With a wide range of local businesses, a
high-performing elementary school, a proud and extensive Shaker cultural heritage, two large
scenic lakes, and an abundance of open space, Enfield is a special community.

patrols and responds to calls on a regular basis.
