WEARE, N.H. (AP) - The town of Weare, New Hampshire, is forming a panel of local citizens to look at candidates for its next police chief, after the last one resigned following accusations he assaulted his personal assistant.

The Concord Monitor reports (https://bit.ly/1G4Z7gq) the Board of Selectmen also signed a contract with Municipal Resources Inc., a firm that previously helped recruit the last group of police chief candidates for the town.

Former Police chief John Velleca resigned in October. State Attorney General Joseph Foster said there was no evidence to bring a criminal charge against him. Velleca was accused of assaulting administrative assistant Jennifer Posteraro. Foster noted inconsistencies in Posteraro’s stories but also said Velleca’s credibility was tainted because his story changed.
