Ex-Mass. police chief takes reins in East Kingston
MacDougall has been a police consultant for 11 years and now works for Municipal Resources Inc., the firm hired by the town to manage and oversee police operations in the wake of the break-in in May.
He has not yet been charged, but authorities have said Rockingham County jail inmate Jarred Brisbois allegedly broke into the evidence room and stole drugs, broke into an officer's locker, and drove a police cruiser while he was left alone at the station for several hours on May 11.
"I've been trying to touch base with all of the officers and make sure they understand what's going on and we continue to focus on public safety in the community," he said Monday.
MacDougall said he's not sure how long he'll manage the department, which has four full-time officers, including Simpson and Iannuccillo, six part-time officers and a secretary.
"It's basically business as usual," he said.
