MEDFORD, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — About two-dozen Medford police officers are facing disciplinary action after allegedly putting hours on their time cards that they did not work.

The involved officers make up about a quarter of the department. They are accused of violating policies related to detail work.

The punishments range from written reprimands to suspensions without pay.

An investigation, conducted by an outside party, was initially launched in June, which looked at a period from February to April.

“I’m dismayed and disappointed with the actions of some members of the Medford Police Department,” Medford Mayor Stephanie M. Burke said in a statement. “However, I remain confident that in concert with the Chief of Police, we handled the matter swiftly, professionally, and with veracity.”
