Manchester alderman urges review of police phone use
Linstad acknowledged during his testimony that he had deceived his wife for nearly four years by communicating and exchanging photos, e-mails and text messages with other women on his work phone.
“It’s not against the rules,” Linstad testified.
“I am not sure how other members of this board feel about the use of phones by Manchester police officers, but this statement causes me a lot of concerns, both financially and legally,” Alderman-at-Large Joseph Kelly Levasseur wrote in a letter to fellow aldermen.
“The phones issued to members of the Community Police Division are on plans where they aren’t capable of sending texts or pictures,” said Mara. “There are a few people in the building that are issued smart phones, but the phones we are talking about here aren’t capable of doing those things. The testimony covers talking with the woman using a work phone.”
Mara said Friday he was not aware if Linstad had reimbursed the city for the minutes used when contacting women on a personal basis.
