Nashua duck case
Members of Nashua's police commission are appointed by the governor.
According to a police report, Campbell had a couple of drinks at a Crowne Plaza restaurant Dec. 23 and then ran over several mallard ducks with his BMW outside the hotel. Pappas, Campbell's friend and attorney, then picked up Campbell from the hotel.
So why is the state subsidizing the Nashuas police force?
Wouldnt you like to understand the history with why the state is overseeing the Nashuas police force.
Why isnt the state overseeing all the town police forces?

Since March 19, 1891, the Nashua Police Department has been under the authority of a three-person Police Commission appointed by the Governor of New Hampshire.
The Police Commissioners appoint police officers and fix their salaries. They have full power to make and enforce all rules for the government of the police force. The Police Commissioners also have full and complete care and control of all lands and buildings used and erected for the use of the police department.

Second Nashua Police Commissioner faces accusations
By KIM HOUGHTON

In the height of a controversy surrounding Nashua Police Commissioner Thomas Pappas, a second police commissioner on Tuesday was publicly accused of unrelated misconduct.
A former officer with the city's police department, Anthony J. Pivero is alleging that longtime Commissioner Thomas Maffee may have intervened during a relative's arrest in the late 1980s or early 1990s.
On Tuesday, Pivero filed a written complaint with the New Hampshire Attorney General's Office, and advised Gov. Maggie Hassan's office regarding his concerns with alleged police activity involving Maffee's former brother-in-law.
"It is alleged that Commissioner Maffee had certain criminal charges dismissed or not brought forward on an individual known to him regarding a prostitution sting in the city of Nashua," Pivero wrote in a letter to Hassan. "It is believed that this individual was in the custody of the Nashua Police Department when certain communications were made by Commissioner Maffee to have the individual released."
Pivero addressed the Nashua Police Commission about the matter during its regular meeting Tuesday night at the police station.
He claims that Maffee's former brother-in-law was released, and no charges were brought forward by the department.
"I hope this complaint will be addressed and thoroughly investigated in the interests of justice," said Pivero.
Members of the commission refused to comment on Pivero's allegations Tuesday, maintaining the public comment period of the meeting is not a question-and-answer session.
Maffee, who has been a commissioner for nearly 30 years, is the second police commissioner in the past two weeks accused of intervening in police investigations

"Nashua is currently the only community in the state that still has its police commission members appointed by the governor and approved by the Executive Council, a practice that has taken place since the 1920s or 1930s"
And he was a police officer!
