On Wednesday August 11, 2021, Bahram Gharony, a civilian employee of the BPD pleaded guilty to charges stemming from a collaborative investigation initiated by the BPD Anti-Corruption Unit in coordination with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
Gharony is currently suspended from the Police Department and will face discipline up to and including termination. The Boston Police Bureau of Professional Standards continues to monitor and investigate this incident.
Superintendent-in-Chief Gregory Long stated “News of Gharony’s plea sends a strong message that no employee of the BPD is above the law and that this conduct will not be tolerated. Incidents like this within the department can erode the trust that our employees work at building each and every day in the communities we serve. I commend the work of the Anti-Corruption Detectives, FBI and United States Attorney’s Office who worked in partnership on this case.”
