Police Commission approves Chief Stephen DuBois' separation agreement


PORTSMOUTH – The Portsmouth Police Commission approved a separation agreement with Chief Stephen DuBois.

According to Seacoast Online, DuBois will voluntarily resign on Jan. 1 and continue to be paid through the end of March.

The agreement also no longer contains an anti-disparagement clause.

DuBois’ resignation comes after a former Portsmouth Seagrant Aaron Goodwin was named in Geraldine Webber’s will for $2.7 million.

DuBois is currently a defendant in a civil suit filed by former officer John Connors. Connors alleged DuBois placed him under a gag order regarding speaking about Goodwin’s will.

The separation agreement does not need to be approved by Portsmouth City Council.
