SCARBOROUGH — Police Chief Robert Moulton said Wednesday that his department is not providing private security at the Prout’s Neck home of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell after Goodell’s decision Tuesday to uphold a four-game suspension of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.

Earlier news reports indicated the NFL had alerted the town’s police department that Goodell would be making a decision on Brady’s appeal and that it was likely to be unpopular in New England.

In a release Wednesday afternoon, Moulton said “The Scarborough Police Department is not providing, nor were we requested to provide, any private security to Commissioner Goodell’s home. No taxpayer funds are being utilized.”

According to Moulton’s assistant, the chief was not returning phone calls seeking clarification or additional information.
