Records: Two officers put on unpaid leave

Last modified: 6/13/2012 12:00:00 AM
Two Weare police officers were on unpaid leave last month, according to town payroll records. One of the officers has since returned to work.

Police Lt. James Carney was not listed on the town's payroll for two weeks in May, according to documents obtained by the Monitor through an open records request. Sgt. Joseph Kelley has not been listed in the town's payroll documents since May 11.

Police Chief Gregory Begin said yesterday that he could neither confirm nor deny that Kelley and Carney were on leave. He said he cannot discuss personnel matters.

Kelley 'still works for us,' Begin said. He said Carney was at work yesterday.

Carney was off the payroll on May 11 and May 18, but was paid again beginning on May 25, according to payroll documents.

Thomas Clow, chairman of the board of select-men, declined to comment yesterday.
