There will be extra police officers on duty in Haverhill over the new year period to deal with any trouble that might arise.

Haverhill police will boost its presence on the streets on Wednesday, December 31 and Thursday, January 1.

“We haven’t had a lot of trouble in the last few years,” a police spokesman said. “Sometimes, we have a lot on and it comes out of nowhere, and other times there can be trouble when you’re not expecting it.

“It’s not always one event or another that sets it off. We will have extra staff on on New Year’s Eve just in case.”
