Carrying on a family tradition, Sgt. Nathan Noyes aims high on the job

By NANCY BEAN FOSTER

Sgt. Nathan Noyes 
Nate Noyes, 35

Home: New Boston

Birthplace: Dover


Immediate family: Wife, Keely; sons, Cole, 9, Camden, 7, and Austin, 2


High school: Kennett High School, Conway


College/degrees: Quinnipiac University, Hamden, Conn., bachelor degrees in political science and sociology, 2000; University of New Hampshire, master’s degree in public administration, 2001


Current job: N.H. State Police, sergeant working out of Troop B in Bedford. I am currently a team leader on the SWAT Unit and facilitate the current Response to Active Shooter Program supported by Col. R. Quinn, Commissioner J. Barthelmes and Gov. Maggie Hassan. The N.H. State Police SWAT Unit has been teaching this program for the past nine years to law enforcement agencies.

Key past positions held: Within the State Police, I have been Cadre at the 138th Police Academy, a primary firearms instructor, division armorer, field training officer, field training supervisor, troop training coordinator, Special Events Response Team (SERT) member, defensive tactics instructor and Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) unit member.


Most admired person: All members of our armed forces as they continually give selflessly to our country to ensure our safety and defend others who cannot defend themselves.


Key current professional challenge: To continually provide the law enforcement community through active shooter training as well as the N.H. State Police, including my troop and the SWAT Unit training that meets the ever-changing needs of their job. This may be through in-house training from shift to shift or in a much broader scope such as the popular Response to Active Shooter Training. As society changes, law enforcement must adapt to become better functioning to ensure the safety of our citizens, cities, officers and our troopers.


Last major achievement: To be part of the law enforcement community that responded to a call in the city of Manchester two years ago where a 10-year-old girl had been taken hostage and was being held against her will. After two days, she was saved because of the combined teamwork and coordinated effort of both Manchester Police Department and N.H. State Police personnel. These officers worked tirelessly together, over Mother’s Day weekend, to ensure this child’s safety.


Two peers who know you well: Sgt. K. Andy Macaione, N.H. State Police and Troop E sergeant; and Sgt. Brendan Davey, N.H. State Police and Troop E sergeant


Biggest problem facing New Hampshire: In my opinion, the need to facilitate economic growth and lifesaving services as the population continues to increase while maintaining the traditional rural quality of life that New Hampshire is known for is a great challenge.


Favorite place in New Hampshire: Littleton. A beautiful town that offers all of the qualities of a small city while maintaining a country feeling. This is my favorite place to vacation. 


What book are you reading now? : "Fearless" by Eric Blehm. A life story about Navy SEAL Team Six Operator Adam Brown, that includes his personal struggles early in his life, his never-ending support from his family and how he became one of America’s heros through steadfast determination and heart.


How do you relax?: To relax, I take the time to travel to Littleton on days off or during vacation.


What websites do you visit most often? : I visit the Officers Down Memorial Page (odmp.org), Policeone.com, Union Leader online, ESPN.com and WMUR.com.

Favorite TV show, radio station or musical artist: I listen to Greg and the Morning Buzz in the mornings on 101.1, but other than that I listen to country (102.5, 97.5).



NEW BOSTON — Sgt. Nathan Noyes always knew what he wanted to be when he grew up, and now that he has achieved that goal, he just wants to be a little bit better at his job every day.


Noyes, 37, is a patrol sergeant with the New Hampshire State Police at Troop B in Bedford. He also serves as the assistant team leader for the State Police SWAT company, following in the footsteps of his father, James Noyes, who was killed in the line of duty in 1994. 


Noyes said he always wanted to be a trooper like his father and two uncles, and was drawn to the comradery that's strong within the law enforcement community.


"It was all I knew growing up," he said. "It's a job that offers you an opportunity to give back."


Noyes has seen his share of dangerous calls as a member of the SWAT team. He has gone after and caught bank robbers and in doing so earned a congressional award. He saved a young girl who was being held hostage by her mother's boyfriend, diving into the window of the home when he heard shots ring out inside. And he has helped the State Police in their planning and preparation for SWAT calls. 


For Noyes, being proficient in the skills that are needed to be an effective member of the SWAT team pushes him.


"It gives me the ability to test myself and to personally do better every day," he said.


But it's the interaction with the suspects at situations where the SWAT teams have to respond that he finds the most fascinating and challenging.


"Learning the skill of negotiation is very important," he said. "You have to have sympathy and empathy, the ability to walk in someone else's shoes, in order to deal with people who are scared to death, but need to answer for the very violent things they've done." 


Losing his father in the line of duty inspires Noyes to make sure that every possible measure is taken to keep both the officers and the public safe. 


"It makes me want to ensure that at every call we respond to we have exhausted every avenue before we have to take it to another level," he said. "I want to try and slow situations down as long as possible before putting anyone in harm's way." 


As a patrol sergeant for Troop B, Noyes strives to maintain a balance between providing safety for the public while building solid relationships with people in the towns and cities he serves. 


"We want to try and maintain the community policing aspect of our work so that we're deterring crime instead of reacting to calls," he said.
