Chief: Nashua's uptick in crime is baffling
In 2012, there was one homicide in the Gate City. So far this year, there have been five confirmed homicides in Nashua, in addition to 17 armed robberies.
"When you look at it altogether, it can be alarming," he said. "Looking at all of these events, each one is certainly significant."
There are often highs and lows when it comes to crime in Nashua or other communities, he said, explaining this is obviously a peak for the city — one that he cannot explain.
The police force has an authorized strength of 179 police officers, however there are never 179 officers working the streets because several of them are either in field training or participating in the police academy, he said.
"Clearly, that number exceeds the 179," said Seusing, declining to quote a specific number of officers he would like to add to the force. Even if the commission approves a larger authorized force, the Board of Aldermen would have the final say since it adopts the budget.
Perhaps the most shocking crime this summer was the double homicide of an elderly couple, William and Eleanor Grant of 37 Newbury St. Last week, the Attorney General's Office announced that the Grants' neighbor, Shawn P. Burne, was likely responsible for their murders, however he has since committed suicide.
"That is very difficult, but unfortunately we have no choice in the matter recently," he said.
"Our officers are investigating these cases thoroughly and bringing them to justice," Seusing email@example.com
