Drivers to the memorial, which starts at 11 a.m. at Exeter High School, will be allowed to reach the school on Route 27 until 9:30 a.m., the start time for the vehicle procession and march, which could draw thousands of officers from across the state and the nation.
In an event intended for law enforcement officers rather than the general public, staff at Stockbridge Funeral Home in Exeter said a walkthrough will be held at Exeter High School from 4 to 7 p.m. today.
Exeter High School announced that no classes for students will be held Wednesday; all after-school athletics and events that day are canceled.
His death has spurred a huge outpouring of support and assistance for the Arkell family from New Hampshire communities and law enforcement officers.
