A Day in the Life of our local Town and County Police

A Few Representitives of Cheshire County's Law Enforcement

Representing Cheshire County Sheriff's Office, Cheshire County Dispatch, Hinsdale Police Department, EX- Winchester Cops, Ex Swanzey Cops, Ex Chesterfield Cops

Here's what they don't want you to Know or See.

They drink, they get drunk and they like to party hearty.

Trevor and Renee Croteau - Captain, Cheshire County Sheriff's Office

New Years Eve 2009

 Representing Hinsdale, is Officer Dean Wright and Cathie Blasik is Representing Cheshire County Dispatch

Representing Hinsdale Police is again Officer Dean Wright -(red shirt) hanging with Ex-Swanzey Cop, Ex Winchester Cop Rafael Rivera and Ex Swanzey Cop, Ex Winchester Cop, Ex Richmnond Cop and now Representing Cheshire County Dispatch John Melia

Rafael Rivera - fired from Swanzey Police, rumor has it, he caught got in a compromising dilema. Fired from Winchester Police for receiving sexual favors while on duty, when another officer walked in on him and his lady friend and caught him with his pants down - literally. An investigation that followed found he helped himself to some material of a ponographic nature that was really evidence taken in by the police department. He was terminated after the investigation. This can be verified by Theresa Sepe and Gary Phillips.


Feeling a little tipsy Dean?

Get those shots down girls......There's plenty more where they came from.

Cathie and Dean

John and Rafael



 Group Shot -Those that can't stand, just lean or sit. Who's the Designated Driver?

Come on, have another drink and Smile, your on Candid Camera ! 

Officer Mike Bomba - Representing the Hinsdale Police Department

 Royce Pelke representing Hinsdale Police, Former Winchester Cop, Ex Chesterfield Cop
Rumored to have been Fired from there.

Rumor has it Royce was fired from Chesterfield for a theft issue. Rumor also has it he stole another officers badge.

Royce and Company

Todd Faulkner

Hinsdale Lieutenant Todd Faulkner - Hey did you do a background check on Royce? Theresa? Did you know Royce had issues in Chesterfield? Does your boss know? What about Theresa? Any background check? Rumor has it she got fired from State Police and rumor has it she spent some in a hospital in Brattleboro. 

The Hip Men from the Pelke Nuptials  

Another party time, fun time - looks like 2007 juding from the date. Officer Bomba and Officer Wright - this is Cathie Blasik from dispatch - do you copy?  

So here's just a glimpse into the lives of our local police. These cops that think they above you and me, think they are better than you and me and really some are far worse. 

What kind of ethics and integrity is there when the police continue to be friendly with cops and ex cops who clearly have questionable integrity? Isn't that like hanging out with known drug dealers?    

And this is Ex Winchester and Ex Richmond Cop Nate Jette

He is an example of a bad cop. It took awhile, but with persistance he was finally booted.

Double Standard? Abuse of Power? Phillips Releases Internal Investigation - Says it was a Frivolous Complaint, Tells AG's He wanted to set Example to Those That Make Frivolous Complaints By Releasing the Internal Investigation to the Public To Show How Stupid They Are

Phillips reports a theft of a document from his office to the Sheriff's Dept.

Says he is afraid confidential information, confidential police business and the release of an officers internal investigation (Roberts) is floating around town.
3 months earleir, Phillips releases a Confidential Internal Ivestigation to the Public.

Most absurd thing of all.

Phillips gets interviewed by Inspector Tracy of the AG’s office, right around the time Reppucci gets fired and he tells him he released an internal investigation to Brian Jordan but that he normally doesn’t do that, but this complaint was frivolous and besides Phillips thinks the officers new about it.

What kind of Hostile Work Environment Did Phillips create for his officers?  

First, who is the Chief to decide to make a pubic comment about whether a citizens complaint is frivolous or not?

Maybe it is a frivolous complaint but do you, as Chief of Police, publically call a complaint from a citizen you think is unimportant, frivolous? Maybe to the person making it, it’s not.

Did that not occur to him?

Is that why complaints are never answered by this Chief? Does he believe that everyone’s complaints are frivolous because he doesn’t share the same opinion?

Second, what police officer would allow their Chief to use them for the purpose of making an example of what is or isn’t a frivolous complaint? What police officer or any employee anywhere would be OK with the following document being released by their boss for any purpose?

It’s a confidential document. It’s an internal investigation. It’s got questions and answers in it.

This guy is not Chief Material by any stretch. Any Chief who would try to use their employee by publically releasing an internal investigation instead of dealing with the person making the complaint in a proper and civilized manner deserves what he gets.

Reppucci got fired because of testimony of people who have proved themselves to be unethical and have been shown to have lied and it was on their word and not evidence that he was terminated.

And for of all things - releasing a confidential document - yet Phillips apparently used his employees to make an example of what he believed a frivolous complaint by a member of the public and that is not how a Supervisor should treat their Subordinate Officers.

Set Up? Did Phillips SET Reppucci Up? It's the only thing that makes sense.

AG's Report page RTK000032 - Information about Nate Jette and Chris Roberts was blacked out by the AG's Office for some reason. Please feel free to use your imagination to substitute names where you see blackened strips.

Phillips Skates Again ~ AG's Found Phillips, Roberts, Platz Guilty of Illegally Changing Names on Bank Account

Public Opinion Should be Outraged that Phillips, Roberts and Platz illegally manipulated the records, the accounts and documents of the Police Association for their own benefit, by not demanding they be removed from office?

These are the same people who day in and day out handle reports and documents and who’s to say or who’s to monitor that they don’t or haven’t changed documents for their own benefit already?

Let’s say for instance they decide they don’t like somebody.

They have shown the law means nothing and they think their badge gives them the authority to do what they want.

These same people have been accused of doing exactly the same thing with police reports and so far they have gotten away with it.

Those That Were In Charge Are Still In Charge....
They Blamed Everyone Else Around Them For Their Problems....
Their Stories Turned Out To Be Not True .....
So Who Is To Blame Now?

Time For A Change
It all started when the Chief got in touch with the Sheriff’s Department to report a crime he alleged took place at the Winchester Police Department. The crime he reported was:


That translates into a break-in and a theft.

According to what Phillips makes for a statement, he left Reppucci’s letter in his locked office, once inside, someone found the grievance letter Reppucci wrote and had given to Phillips. Phillips statement goes on to say the letter was still in a sealed envelope and that he left it on his desk because Reppucci gave it to him at the end of the day and he didn’t get a chance to read it before he left for the day.

According to his statement, the next day the Chief was at some meeting in Manchester for the day.

The afternoon of the day he was in Manchester, Butch Plifka went to see Bob Gray at the Town Hall. He went there on his own behalf, for his own reasons, whatever they were and while there made a few comments to Mr. Gray about the police department and that he knew Reppucci was going to be filing a grievance.

Things happened quickly after that because once Phillips heard this, he immediately got concerned that his office was broken into, that someone made a copy of a confidential document that was in a sealed envelope and then put the original it back in the envelope or another envelope and returned it back to his office.

According to Phillips, a copy was made and this deviant or these deviants dispersed this confidential document, to at least one member of the public and according to Phillips, who knows who else. Phillips statement also says, the letter contained discipline records of officers and confidential information.

Reppucci has said that is not true and that the letter didn’t even have any current police department members names even it. Reppucci said the only thing mentioned was that the other person who was promoted for the Lieutenants position was under an internal investigation. And that is a fact He was.

1. Phillips acknowledges in his response letter and in other documents that was true and even comments that Reppucci wasn’t specific in his grievance and that the person who was under investigation was the one who requested the investigation in the first place.

2. According to Reppucci that is true but, Phillips forgot to mention that the other person in question made the complaint about himself so another officer, who he was targeting, would get questioned and then hopefully terminated for spreading rumors about him.

3. Phillips also didn’t mention that when this other person made the complaint about himself, it was so that he get investigated for misconduct and that he was the focus of the investigation. That means, if he were found guilty he would have been disciplined under the town and department policies he accused himself of violating.

4. Phillips also forgot to mention that he assigned Reppucci to do the investigation and that’s why he knows about it.

5. A little sneaky and underhanded? You bet it is and Unethical too!

6. The fact is, when a police officer is under an internal investigation it’s not confidential information and shouldn’t be.

7. Members of the public were involved in this investigation and the public has a right to know when Officer’s are under an internal investigation.

8. The public should know whether the police officer’s on the street, conducting investigations, handling cases and most importantly who’s salaries are being paid by them are competent to do the job.

9. One form of transparency to the public is letting them know whether or not an Officer is the focus of repeated internal investigations.

10. In Winchester these things are covered up because that is what Phillips wants. He wants people to believe he runs a tip top police department and that he’s competent and the other members are competent.

11. It usually indicates a problem when a Chief doesn’t want people to know what his department and people are doing. You know there are problems and it’s not well run when there is a lot of turn over and a department that is always having to defend itself because of complaints made.

12. Somewhere along the line this Chief decided the public has no right to know what he does or why.

13. For instance Nate Jette was the focus of numerous internal investigations.

14. Maybe instead of allowing him to continue unchecked, a member of the Town wouldn’t have been injured by him and because of him.

15. It was Jette that mishandled his taser and tased him in the chest. After doing that, he never checked his body for any potential physical harm, again violating the policies and by doing so and by not following the policies, he left the taser probe in the chest of the person.

16. That taser probe was surgically removed 2 months later.

17. Is that fair to this person? Is that fair to the public?

18. Then at a public Selectmen’s meeting they refused to accept the complaint and a video because it wasn’t presented by the person himself but by someone this person authorized to act for him! How arrogant, disrespectful and uncaring a BOS we have.

19. I’ll bet his family was Thankful this past Thanksgiving that he didn’t suffer any worse than he did. It could have been a lot worse if it were a gun.

In the end, instead of addressing the real problems, the Chief would rather have investigations, by the Sheriff’s Department, about crimes that never happened, that are used to discredit people when they have legitimate, accurate and documentable concerns and have brought that information to the Chief.

In the end, there is no evidence that anyone broke into his office.

In the end, the legitimate concerns about how the police department was being run turned out to be pretty accurate.

In the end, it seems, Phillips was more concerned with destroying the credibility of a few people, so he could try to save his own ego instead of dealing with the real problems he had and didn’t know how to fix.

He had to save face and chose to break the law, rather than admit to his problems.

How arrogant and pompous is that?

And it looks like the deck is stacked against the Chief.

It appears that He and the Lieutenant Christopher Roberts might not have that much needed quality we expect in our police officers. INTEGRITY.

DEMAND ANSWERS: Formal Complaints filed by Dan Reppucci to County Commissioners against Deputy Kelvin Macie and Winchester BOS against Cheif Gary Phillips & Lt Christopher Roberts

Unethical Police and Police Corruption – Don’t Look the Other Way - DEMAND ANSWERS, ASK QUESTIOINS AND HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE.

Why is Hinsdale Police Officer, Theresa Sepe, now a Board member, helping to cover up these crimes and protecting the CHIEF?

Why is former Lt. Sherman Tedford helping to cover up these crimes, now that he is a Board of Selectmen?

Why don’t they DEMAND answers from the CHIEF?

They KNOW the LAW, they know the DEPARTMENT Policies and THEY KNOW their CHIEF lied and manipulated and twisted the TRUTH to get rid of REPPUCCI.

Why do they hide from the TRUTH?

Have you ever been accused of doing something you didn't do? Have you ever had to defend yourself against a lie? accusation? mistruth?

Have you ever had to STAND up for yourself because someone doesn’t like what you stand for?

When the police do it, the stakes are higher.

The police are trusted because we are taught they aren’t supposed to break the law.

But they CAN and all too often they Do.

And when BAD Cops do it to GOOD people they try to cover it up and make the GOOD people look BAD.

This is what happens when the GOOD people have the proof and Stand Up to the COPS who are BAD.

Sometimes Good people get to speak out and give evidence and they show the world that there really are BAD Cops in the world and we need to know about them.

JUST think what could happen to you, if you get accused of doing something wrong, when you didn’t, but the police accuse you anyway, just because they can.

Because they don’t like what you stand for.

Just think what can happen to honest, law abiding people, if we keep letting them get away with it?

We all must all do our part to expose and stop BAD COPS so the GOOD COPS can do their job.

It’s time to fight back against BAD COPS. There is NO room for people who misuse their power and then lie through their teeth that they don't.

If you can’t be an honest cop and Follow the Laws and uphold the Constitution then there is no room for you as a cop in this Country.

We will be vigilant and we will expose you and all your dirty deeds, because that’s what GOOD people do to protect other GOOD people when BAD Cops don’t.

Dan Reppucci, wrongfully and unlawfully terminated, after Gary Phillips, Chief of Police and Cheshire County Deputy Kelvin Macie BOTH TESTIFY UNDER OATH he was "insubordinate" when he failed to answer questions during an "internal investigation".

Neither has told the truth, under oath, that it was a CRIMINAL investigation and by law and department policy, Reppucci has a LEGAL right to NOT answer questions and TO speak with an Attorney as he requested to do – BEFORE answering questions.

Instead of complying with that request, THEY chose to VIOLATE his Constitutional Rights to consult with an attorney.

The REASON is Simple: Reppucci was being TARGETED by the Chief for HIS information and knowledge of criminal and unethical activities going on in the police department.

Activity that the Chief wanted COVERED UP. The way to accomplish that was to discredit and silence REPPUCCI.


The Chief of Police reported to Sheriff Foote a break in and theft at the Police Department.

Deputy Kelvin Macie was sent by Sheriff Foote to investigate.

Kelvin Macie - Investigator for Cheshire County NH Deputy Sheriff.

Repucci knew they were conducting a criminal investigation and asked to consult with an attorney BEFORE answering questions because he felt he was being targeted, it was HIS legal RIGHT, IT was THEIR Obligation to obey that request.

A legal right to counsel is afforded to anyone in the country in criminal investigations conducted by the police and that included Reppucci.

Phillips and Macie violated the 5th and 6th Amendments of the US Constitution, when they did not allow Reppucci to exercise his Constitutional Right to Counsel.

Neither are NEW to LAW ENFORECEMENT and BOTH have many years of experience.

Reppucci was concerned he was being SET UP by the Chief.

Reppucci has stated and it is recorded in Kelvin Macie's report he felt he was being targeted for termination for reporting illegal and unethical activities going on at the Winchester Police Department.

Both Deputy Kelvin Macie and Chief Gary Phillips testified Reppucci was being questioned during an internal investigation and during that questioning he failed to cooperate.

Why would they testify that it was an internal investigation and not a criminal investigation?

Simple, if it was internal investigation, he was insubordinate; if it was a criminal investigation, he wasn't, as he was exercising his constitutional right to speak with counsel under the law and the department policies he was employed under.

In order to discredit and go after Reppucci, the Chief with the help of Kelvin Macie had to tell everyone AND also testify that Reppucci was bad and wasn't following orders. That he was being insubordinate and he had to be disposed of, immediately, that he was a threat to the department.

The Chief and Deputy colluded to successfully violate his constitutional rights.

They lied about the fact it was a criminal investigation. They hid and covered up that very important fact up making people believe that they did nothing wrong but that Reppucci was the one who was wrong. Including to the courts.

Both try to discredit Reppucci saying he's just a disgruntled employee who is mad he didn't get a promotion.

Dan Reppucci's story makes sense, a pretend break in and a person fired are just too coincidental and a history with this Chief.

Those who know Reppucci know he wouldn't have given up a 15 year career because he didn't get a promotion. He has an extensive and accomplished background and his yearly reviews were near perfect year after year, including the one he got just a few months before this entire matter. The Chief going on and on for pages about Reppucci's accomplishments, self sacriface, availability even after hours, with NO EXTRA pay, to the department and officers and his importance to both the agency and the Chief and how his professionalism carries over into the rest of the police community.

Reppucci: Sergeant, Detective, Police Prosecutor for several years, educated, disciplined.

Realistically, even if there was some problem, you would think that the Chief wouldn't just "throw away" such a loyal employee whom he relied on and who was always there for both him and the Department.

The Chief's story makes no sense.

Those who know Reppucci know the real story know that the problem is that he had information the Chief didn't and still doesn't want out in public. Information he doesn't want the public to know about.

The Chief TRIED to VIOLATE this Officer's Constitutional Rights when he ordered him, demanded the Officer immediately cooperate and immediately answer questions in the Deputy's criminal investigation.

Reppucci held firm, stood his ground and honored the Oath of Office he took to not violate the law and to Uphold the Constitution.

The Chief couldn't find anything else this Officer had done wrong so he had his Lt. Chris Roberts check his emails and fabricate yet another story.

They both tell a story about how he was stealing confidential documents.

Reppucci says that's a ridiculous lie. Reppucci has proof that Roberts lied under oath and fabricated his story because the only emails he ever had were work related and turned in when complete and nothing was ever stolen.

Reppucci said that the emails he had were emails that there show there were problems with some of the employees at the police department, including Roberts.

Reppucci has said he was given an assignment to investigate some goings on at the police department and it's not his fault that the truth ended up being negative for Roberts and the Chief wanted it covered up.

Reppucci had been bringing forward knowledge of Criminal and Unethical Activity going on and is still going on in the police department. So far it's swept under carpets. Sooner or later that will stop happening.

Reppucci wants to see Justice done and these people properly disciplined and removed from their poistions for what they have done to him and to others.

Reppucci wants the opportunity to clear his name. He has said he will continue that fight until the truth comes out. We will continue to help him.

Phillips, Macie and Roberts have ALL violated their Oath of Office and should be ashamed of themselves for even thinking they fall into the same class as real, honest and hardworking Law Enforcement Professionals.

Police Corruption Needs to be Exposed and Needs to be Dealt with Legally. 

The THIN BLUE LINE needs to be CROSSED. 

Please feel free to share your stories and comments.
