The long awaited P.O.S.T report is out

As many of you already know, the P.O.S.T commission was established after the killing George Floyd. Governor Baker assembled a group of different people with various backgrounds to weed out the bad actors in law enforcement and ensure that transparency and accountability were part of every police department in the state. Unfortunately under the current administration residents still see no transparency and accountability. 

 Have a look at the POST web site.

 The database includes records dated as early as December 1984 and as recent as Jan. 31, 2023.

Disciplinary records by officer last name

Disciplinary records by law enforcement agency

Disciplinary records CSV file

You will see each department in the state and the officers who have been disciplined and for how long.

 You will see some familiar names. There is one not certified to work as I understand the rules. All the rest (24) have been suspended or disciplined. So now I see why the huge jump in OT in the this years budget.

In today's Globe, reporter Sean Cotter writes that the data report from the P.O.S.T commission is flawed in it's reporting and has gaps, errors, and major omissions. Cambridge and Everett PD's are not on the list at all even after submitting discipline records as requested.

For the majority of FPD sustained allegations type the reason were, other misconduct, conduct unbecoming. But these allegation types seem so generic with no specifics attached. And the discipline seems to vary, with suspensions ranging from 1 to 30+days, written reprimand or supervision, all for the same allegation type.

Not a word from Charlie or FPD. No word on the status of James Antonio who is listed as not certified.

A reader asked me why the officer who shot and killed Eurie Stamps was not on the list. That's a very good question.
