(Northampton, MA) — An investigation into payroll improprieties at the Northampton Police Department has ended with two people losing their jobs. Captain Scott Savino and secretary MaryAnn Keating are no longer employed, according to a press release from the Mayor’s office. The investigation began in September and was conducted by the Hampden DA’s Office to avoid any appearance of conflict. News organizations including WHMP have filed public records requests to gather more information about the matter. The Springfield Republican reports a letter from the DA to Police Chief Russell Sienkiewicz reveals Keating was paid a total of $18,000 for work she did not perform and that Savino signed off on a “small portion” of the unworked hours.
