Sheriff Eli Rivera


Thank you for your continual support and the confidence you havein as your Sheriff.  The one thing that I  truly enjoy about being your Sheriff, is the ability to engage directly with local organizations and establish partnerships to address the issues that are important to our community.

Once again elections are around the corner and it is my intent to continue my service and hard work for the people of Cheshire County and seek reelection for a third term.  We have developed great partnerships throughout the County with organizations, such as:

  • ​Monadnock Alcohol and Drug Abuse Coalition
  • MCVP - Mondnock Center for Violence Prevention
  • MC² Charter School - High School Internships
  • Southwestern Community Services
  • Monadnock Region Special Response Team
  • Impact Monadnock - Early Childhood Development
  • Healthy Monadnock 2020
  • National Prescription Drug Take Back
  • many more 

I have taken the current heroin epidemic in our community very seriously.  As a community, t0gether we can make an impact and control this epidemic.  I continue to worked with local organizations in the area by:

  • Providing needle disposal kits to organizations, such as Keene Hates Heroin, Southwestern Community Services, 100 Night Shelters, etc...
  • Installing a Medication Disposal Unit at the Sheriff's Office to provide an addition location within Cheshire County for the safe disposal of unused prescriptions.
  • Partnering with the Keene Police and the NH State Police to conduct drug interdiction patrols
  • Partnering with Keene Police, Keene Fire, NH State Police, Cheshire Medical Center and Southwestern Community Service to organize the ChAARI initiative (Cheshire Addiction Assisted Recovery Initiative).  This initiative provides first responders in Cheshire County dealing with addicts seeking help by providing Recovery Coaches within an hour of a call.  This initiative will allow a Recovery Coach to begin the process towards recovery and services immediately.  This partnership and initiative has been adopted by all of Cheshire County Police and Fire Departments.
  • Partnered with PAARI (Police Addiction Assisted Recovery Initiative), better known as the Gloucester Angel Program
  • I continue to be an active voice by sitting and participating in round table discussions and meetings about this current issue.

I ask that on November 8, 2016 you cast your vote for me (Eli Rivera) for a third term as your Sheriff, thank you.
