A 2nd Gilford police officer placed on paid leave

GILFORD — A town official confirmed yesterday that a second Gilford Police Officer has been placed on an paid administrative leave.

The official said that on or about September 15, Officer Holly Harris was placed on a paid leave. She is the Gilford School District's School Resource Officer.

Two weeks ago, officials confirmed Police Chief Kevin Keenan has been placed on paid administrative leave as of August 29.

The town official gave no reason for either leave.

Lt. James Leach is acting chief and last week Town Administrator Scott Dunn said Leach assumed the role of acting chief because of the way the department is structured.
