Manchester officer cleared of assault, resigns
"It was of his own volition," Willard said.
For months, Soucy had worked on modified duty, following his July arrest on the domestic-related assault in Hookett. However, in late March — as he awaited the verdict in his trial — Soucy was placed on administrative leave because the Police Standards and Training Council had suspended his certification to be a police officer.
The Council lifted the suspension on Tuesday, said Tim Merrill, an official with the Police Standards and Training Council. Soucy, who had been a Manchester police officer for almost 10 years, resigned the following day.
Earlier this month, Willard said Soucy was under both an internal and a criminal investigation. He did not elaborate, but a lawyer for Soucy's former girlfriend said Soucy had contacted a mutual acquaintance before his March trial.
Willard said police sent the criminal investigation to the Hillsborough County Attorney's Office, which determined the criminal complaint was unfounded.
