State Claims Hamilton Cops Falsified EMT Training


HAMILTON , Mass. -- A state investigation has found that members of the Hamilton Police Department, including the chief, have been routinely falsifying EMT training records, claiming to have taken classes that were never held.

The Salem News reports Thursday that state Office of Emergency Medical Services found that the pattern of alleged deception has been going on for as long as 10 years.

The agency found that the department s actions "endangered public health and safety" and has suspended the EMT licenses of one former and eight current officers, including Chief Walter Cullen.

The officers received extra pay every year for taking the courses.

The agency alleges that the fraud was known to town officials. Police have provided the town s ambulance service for at least 40 years.
