Lebanon police lieutenant resigns during internal probe into faking of fitness test results
Lt. Shawn P. Freitas resigned from his full-time position on March 3, according to a March 26 order from the State of New Hampshire Police Standards and Training Council.
On Dec. 17, Roberts and Gifford completed a mile-and-half run as part of a fitness test officers are required by the state to pass every three years. Freitas conducted the test, but according to the March 26 order, he said on March 25 that he "improperly timed the mile-and-half run."
Chief Gary Smith said Tuesday both have successfully passed the fitness test.
There was no break in Gifford's employment or certification, Smith said.
Along with the drop in rank, he took a pay cut from $34.21 to $28.14 an hour.
Smith said he could not discuss the results of the internal investigation as it is a personnel matter, but said, "All three officers, from past performance, were excellent officers."
