On Wednesday, Aug. 4, following a vote, the Executive Council approved a $3.4 million contract that equips New Hampshire State Police with body cameras. The adoption of body camera usage by New Hampshire State Police follows a series of recommendations made by the New Hampshire Commission on Law Enforcement Accountability, Community, and Transparency (LEACT). Governor Sununu endorsed all recommendations made by the Commission and issued Executive Order 2020-19, immediately implementing over 20 of the Commission’s recommendations, in October of 2020.
Shtudy, a Manchester-based startup that connects high-tech employers to candidates of color, is hosting a virtual career fair on Wednesday, Aug. 25 with employers and professionals in New Hampshire and across the country.
On Tuesday, U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), a senior member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, unveiled new legislation with Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) to reform the U.S. government’s investigation and response to suspected directed energy attacks, also referred to as “Havana Syndrome,” and improve access to care for impacted individuals. The legislation would require the president to designate a senior national security official to organize a whole-of-government response. It would also create workforce guidance to increase awareness of these attacks and strengthen avenues for reporting symptoms. And the bill would authorize $45 million to support these response efforts through the Department of Defense – $30 million of which would be used to improve access to care for impacted individuals.
