As a result of an investigation, information was uncovered by the Boston Police Department’s Anti-Corruption Unit regarding alleged payroll/overtime abuse by an employee of the department. The Federal Bureau of Investigations and United States Attorney’s Office became involved with the criminal investigation into the allegations. As a result of this investigation, a former civilian employee was indicted by a Federal Grand Jury.
Said Police Commissioner William Gross, “The allegations and behavior alleged in today’s indictment is very troubling and in no way reflect the attitudes of the hard-working employees of the Boston Police Department. I hold my employees to the highest standards and expect them to obey all laws. News of these indictments send a strong message that this type of behavior will not be tolerated or ignored and can damage the trust that all my members of the department have worked so hard to build with the communities we serve.”
