On May 12, 2014 Officer Stephen Arkell of the Brentwood Police Department made the ultimate sacrifice after responding to a domestic disturbance call on Mill Pond Road.   He was shot and killed while doing what he did best, helping people within his community.

In 2015 the 1st Annual Officer Stephen Arkell Community 5k was established in Brentwood NH to honor and remember the selfless sacrifice of Officer Arkell.  Celebrated by over 2,000 participants and almost 40 local sponsors, the day was a huge success.  

Following the race, in cooperation with the Portsmouth Rotary Club, 100% of the proceeds were used to establish the Stephen Arkell Memorial Scholarship Fund.  This fund awards yearly scholarships to Seniors at Exeter High School, where Stephen Arkell attended.  These students must demonstrate the same sense of community, volunteerism and love of athletics that Stephen possessed.  We are proud to announce in 2016 we awarded our first set Officer Stephen Arkell Memorial Scholarships.  Please visit our page for a downloadable application

Let this be a day for the community to come together, help one another, and remember a beloved friend. 

Thank you all for your continued support!
