    The rivalry was back and stronger than ever in this year’s battle for the Championship and the bragging rights. It was a high intensity, action packed game of Good vs. Good – testosterone fueled and full of heart. The NH POLICE TEAM won 4-2,tying the overall series 2–2.

    NH FIRE was named Highest Fundraising Team for their all out efforts. More than 5,000 fans were on hand to enjoy the pre-game fireworks (literally), and to cheer for these heroes who make our lives safer every day. Taking care of the public, and taking care of New Hampshire’s children – the CHaD Badges…when the going gets tough, the hockey game is just starting.

    “When we visited CHaD it was a huge eye opening experience for all of us. Just to see how the money we raise with this game makes a difference for the kids and their families – to actually see it, changed our whole mentality of why we’re here and what we’re doing.”
    ~ Micky Drouin, Dover Fire and Rescue, NH Fire Team Captain

Murderer of NH Police Officer Parole DENIED!

Updated On: Nov 17, 2011 (12:21:00)
Congratulations to the friends and family of Manchester Police Officer Ralph W. Miller, murdered in the line of duty on October 2, 1976, as his murderer’s parole request was DENIED this morning!  There was a great turnout from Officer Miller’s department, good job to the Manchester Police Department!

There is a parole hearing for Cleo Roy, Inmate # 68025, scheduled for Thursday, October 6, at 0900 at the NH State Prison for Men in Concord.  Roy murdered Manchester NH Police Officer Ralph W. Miller on October 2, 1976.  Roy was arrested, charged and found guilty of this murder.  He was sentenced to 50 years to life.  During his incarceration, Roy committed a murder of another inmate on behalf of the Aryan Brotherhood.  The NH Police Association urges the NH Adult Parole Board to reject this request for parole to protect the citizens of NH.

IF YOU WANT TO ATTEND THE ACTUAL HEARING AND SHOW SUPPORT FOR OFFICER MILLER’S FAMILY, FRIENDS, CO-WORKERS AND DEPARTMENT, YOU MUST CONTACT THE ADULT PAROLE BOARD IN ADVANCE AT 603-271-2569.

Below is information on the NH Adult Parole Board.

New Hampshire State Prison for Men . PO Box 14 . Concord, NH 03302 . (603) 271-2569

Board Composition. The Adult Parole Board is an independent agency that reports directly to the governor. The board consists of seven members appointed by the Governor and approved by the Executive Council. Members serve five-year terms, and may serve no more than two consecutive terms. By law, three board members must preside over each hearing. The board is part-time, which means that members report for duty only when scheduled for hearings. Board members are always available to issue arrest warrants for parole violators, and to consult with parole officers regarding problem cases.

Parole hearings are generally held on Thursdays in the Parole Board Hearings Room located at the New Hampshire State Prison for Men in Concord.

Parole revocation hearings are generally held as needed on Tuesdays in the same location.

These dates and times can change based on necessity. Members of the public wishing to attend parole hearings must contact the Adult Parole Board in advance.

Upcoming Parole Board Hearings

Is the NH Legislature really interested in improving the financial stability of the NH retirement System?

Updated On: Jul 12, 2011 (11:54:00)

The trustees of the NH Retirement System were advised by their actuaries on the proper rates for re-certification but anything under the present 8.5% would require additional monies to be paid from the cities/towns. The Board, by an 8-6 vote, acted properly, but the legislature just didn’t like it. So what did they do? They changed the law, now keeping the rate at an absurd 8.5% and bypassed good accounting procedures. They also changed the composition of the Board effective 7/1 as a punishment instead of the gradual transfer.


NCPERS Public pension 2011 Study

Updated On: Jul 12, 2011 (11:55:00)

NCPRS Releases its 2011 study of public pension funds

(click on the link below to read the study)

http://www.nhpolice.net/2011_06_ncpers_public_fund_study.pdf

Although media coverage has focused on examples of troubled funds, the data show that retirement funds overall are acting in a thoughtful, responsible and long-term manner. Improved funding, closer management of benefit levels and stronger oversight are important components of the health of public retirement–and of the nation’s overall economic health.
