Manchester, NH – The Manchester police officer who resigned last week following his arrest on a drunken-driving charge will be able to collect a pension of nearly $36,850 a year, according to an estimate based on the New Hampshire Retirement System pension formula.
The rough calculation takes into account the 21 years of employment David Connare had with Manchester police as well as his recent wages.
“Pretty much, what people get is what the law allows them to get,” said Marty Karlon, spokesman for the Retirement System.
The president of the Manchester Patrolmans Association, Connare resigned his $70,400-a-year job after an Oct. 16 accident on Interstate 93. New Hampshire State Police charged him with misdemeanor DWI and felony reckless conduct.
