Adams: NPD Payroll Deal “An Outrage”

(Northampton, MA) — Documents released Tuesday reveal new details about the payroll scandal at the Northampton Police Department. Captain Scott Savino and department secretary MaryAnn Keating will lose their jobs but won’t be prosecuted. The Hampden DA found Keating collected 18-thousand dollars for hours she didn’t work. Savino as her supervisor signed off on some of the pay. Keating will pay the city 30-thousand in restitution, including legal and administrative costs. Savino will be paid 28-grand in back sick leave and keep his pension. Councilor Jesse Adams is speaking out, saying the deal is an outrage and the penalty is not even close to sufficient.

WHMP’s Mary Serreze secured these documents from the mayor’s office through a public records request:
