Chris Sununu on Crime

 

 


Committed to bring greater accountability to our system

This budget continues the commitment I made to bring greater accountability to our system by funding the Public Integrity Unit within the Attorney General's Office. It's an independent, statewide office that reviews complaints of misconduct. It invests into our new programs in the Police Standards and Training Academy. And it creates a $1 million matching fund for local Law Enforcement Agencies to make the investments they desperately need, like body and dashboard cameras.

Banned choke holds, require police misconduct reporting

Q: Restrict police use of force and increase public oversight?

Chris Sununu: Yes. Signed a "bill to ban police choke holds and require mandatory reporting of police misconduct." Formed commission to recommend police training reforms.

Dan Feltes: Yes. In State Senate passed bill that "bans choke holds by police and mandates police reporting of misconduct by other police." "We must do more including updating police standards and training with implicit bias training and de-escalation."

Supports capital punishment, to support crime victims

New Hampshire became the 21st state to ban capital punishment as the state Senate voted 16-8 to override the governor's veto of a death-penalty repeal. Sixteen votes in the 24-member chamber were required to override the veto.

Republican Gov. Chris Sununu, a staunch opponent of repeal, cited law enforcement and families of crime victims in his reaction to the override vote. "I am incredibly disappointed that the Senate chose to override my veto," the governor said in a statement. Death penalty opponents withstood a strong lobbying effort by Sununu and active members of law enforcement throughout the state. Sununu came within one vote of having his veto sustained in the House, which voted last week to override the veto, 247-123, just meeting the two-thirds requirement. Repeal of the death penalty was a major initiative for the Democratic leadership in House and Senate.

Expedite critical resources to combat crime

This morning, 18 respected members of New Hampshire's law enforcement community joined together in support of Chris Sununu for Governor. The coalition highlights Sununu's broad support from New Hampshire's public safety officials: "As New Hampshire faces a debilitating drug crisis, it has never been clearer the strong support we need from a governor who will work to expedite the critical resources that enable us to quickly and safely combat crime and reduce the scourge of drugs," said a police spokesperson. "As governor, Chris Sununu will make support for law enforcement one of his top priorities."

Chris Sununu said of the announcement, "In New Hampshire, we are proud to have one of the most effective and professional law enforcement communities in the country. Our officers work tirelessly to keep our families safe and to address some our state's most complex and dangerous issues. Support for law enforcement has never been more vital."
