Go Topless Day at Hampton Beach is Sunday, NH police aren't expecting trouble


HAMPTON — Expecting the event to be like any other day at the beach, police have no plans to increase staffing for the Go Topless Day on Sunday.

Supporters of the Free and Nipple movement - an effort to legalize and normalize women being topless in public - appeared at Hampton Beach last year as well.

Richard Sawyer, chief of police, said his officers plan to respect the topless women who show up for the event, as it is legal for them to do so in New Hampshire, according to Seacoast Online.

Sawyer said there was no need for extra police last year, even though some people were offended by the display.

Organizers for the event encouraged participants to treat it like a normal day at the beach aside from being topless.
