"This alleged behavior is unacceptable for any member of the Boston Police Department," Boston Police Commissioner William Gross said in a public statement. "As Commissioner, I want to make it clear to every officer that any action that goes against our rules and regulations will not be tolerated - without exception."
Earlier this month, three officers who work at the headquarters in Roxbury were placed on leave pending what the department called an investigation into "payroll discrepancies."
In light of the ongoing investigation, Gross has called for a review of attendance and payroll for every district and unit in the department.
Gross also plans to meet with all commanders to "make abundantly clear the rules and expectations surrounding time attendance, and reporting for duty at the department,” according to a statement released by department.
