NPH Defends Police Officer’s Right to Remain Silent

NPH Attorney Meghan Cooper argued a case of first impression at the Appeals Court recently on behalf of NEPBA Local 911, the Worcester Police Patrolmen.  The Court will decide whether to uphold NPH wins at both the Civil Service Commission and the Superior Court, and determine whether an officer can be forced, under threat of termination, to testify at his own disciplinary hearing.  Atty Cooper worked closely with the Attorney General’s Office and the Civil Service Commission in defending these decisions.  We will keep you posted.
