Tilton cop has been paid $24k not to work, so far

TILTON — It's been just over five months since Det. Cpl. Matt Dawson has been collecting a paycheck but not working at the Police Department.

Dawson earns $30.48 an hour, meaning he has been paid about $24,380 since he placed on paid leave.

Selectboard Chair Pat Consentino said yesterday that the issue is a personnel matter and she is not able to publicly address it.
