Public invited to speak about cop’s inheritance case (NH)

PORTSMOUTH — A public hearing by the Police Commission, to discuss a report about an officer’s disputed inheritance, will be held at 5 p.m. Wednesday in City Council chambers, Commission Chairman John Golumb clarified Monday.

Golumb said the hearing will be conducted like a City Council meeting, whereby members of the public are invited to speak for three minutes each. Also like the council, Golumb said, he’ll allow for a second round of comments, if needed. The commission chairman said the hearing is scheduled to last an hour, but will go longer if needed.

The public hearing is to discuss an independent report published by a panel led by retired judge Stephen Roberts. The panel investigated the circumstances surrounding police Sgt. Aaron Goodwin’s inheritance from the late Geraldine Webber, which was the bulk of her $2.7 million estate. The report notes that Goodwin broke three rules in the department’s Duty Manual and three rules in the city’s Code of Ethics. It also found that police officials failed to act.
