Police officials have been criticized for asking for more money

HOOKSETT, N.H. — Police officials have gotten heat in the past week after top brass were awarded pay raises up to 13 percent behind closed doors. But that hasn't stopped them from asking for more.
Under the proposed police department budget figures for next year, the chief and Police Commission are asking for the creation of a 2 percent pay raise "pool" for non-union officers, including the same four who got the controversial raises last month.
