Consentino fired as Atkinson police chief

ATKINSON— Selectmen announced this morning the firing of longtime police chief Phil Consentino.

Town Administrator Bill Innes released a statement from the Board of Selectmen saying they took the action at a meeting Wednesday night.

Selectmen said Consentino’s dismissal was “for cause,” job related and followed an independent investigation.

The dismissal came a day after Consentino announced he would be retiring.

Selectmen said they would have no further comment on the dismissal.

Sgt. Patrick Caggiano will take over as acting police chief immediately. Innes will be the town’s acting director of elderly affairs.
