PORTSMOUTH - In an at-times-heated public hearing, dozens of Portsmouth residents spoke about the future of the Police Commission Monday night.
The meeting came close to a month after former police Sgt. Aaron Goodwin was fired following a report of his involvement with an elderly woman who changed her will to leave him a $2.7 million inheritance.
The hearing dealt with three possible amendments to the city charter which would affect the future of the commission and its responsibilities.
Many residents called the proposals a knee-jerk reaction by the City Council.
Some residents want criminal charges brought against Goodwin.
Councilors voted 8-1 to add a ballot measure to expand the Police Commission from three members to five. Voters will decide on the issue November 3rd.
