Former trooper Haden Wilber was a member of State Police’s Mobile Enforcement Team, a drug-interdiction unit that the American Civil Liberties Union of New Hampshire has criticized for its use of traffic violations as pretexts to stop and investigate unrelated suspicions about drivers.

A judge has ordered New Hampshire State Police to release personnel records on a former state trooper who was fired for misconduct. In the past, personnel records for police officers were almost always exempt from public disclosure in the state, but that’s starting to change.

The New Hampshire Senate passed a “parental bill of rights” this week that would require schools to tell parents if their child has requested to use a different name or pronouns in school. Critics are warning that the bill could harm LGBTQ students.

We get the latest news from around New Hampshire on this edition of the N.H. News Recap.
