Dear Billy T and Somerville Speakup Line,
In regards to the Somerville Police Department’s compensation and overtime scandal, it’s been going on for an awful long time flying low under the radar screen so not to be detected. Thank you for having the guts to expose it!
The hypocrisy in this administration is appalling. A few years ago Officer Robert V. was fired for taking a bag of candy home after a Halloween party at the SPD.
Before that, his brother officer John V. was also fired for putting in fraudulent requests for overtime in court.
These men paid the price, but others who did much worse get off scott free. I think The State Attorney General should initiate an investigation into this. Also let’s see what this new Somerville Board of Aldermen do about it or if they’re just going to ignore like its invisible. Clock is ticking.
