Board of Ethics to investigate 'complex citizen situation' in Portsmouth
PORTSMOUTH — The Portsmouth Police Commission voted to call for the city's Board of Ethics assistance to convene and investigate a "complex citizen situation" on Tuesday, according to seacoastonline.com.
The Commission discussed the merits of the unspecified matter during a non-public session and then decided to refer it to the ethics board.
Commission chairman, Brenna Cavanaugh, said that the board would protect the privacy of the person who was "victimized" and that of the allegations that were originally made on the police department. She did not discuss further details.
There are "multiple layers" in the story, Cavanaugh said.
Ethical and policy concerns within the Police Department were raised in a report published June 1, 2015 by a panel led by retired judge Stephen Roberts.
