The Portsmouth Police Department has been served a demand letter seeking $21 million from five residents claiming to be victims of police misconduct and "malicious prosecution."

The Portsmouth Herald reports the letter requests immediate payment of the sum or the plaintiffs will take the police department and city to court, where they allege a jury would award damages exceeding the demanded compensation. 

Portsmouth Community TV has a new show this spring – featuring the city’s police department. It’s just the latest effort by the department to mend its public image following a well-publicized lawsuit.
