Cohasset police chief placed on paid leave


Cohasset Police Chief Mark DeLuca has been placed on paid administrative leave by the town manager following “multiple allegations” by the town’s police union.

Acting Town Manager Michael Milanoski made the move on Friday, after learning of the complaints against DeLuca by the police union and its president, Patrick Reardon. In a statement, Milanoski said the town would investigate the merit of the allegations and could not comment or provide details until the investigation was complete.

In DeLuca’s absence, Cohasset Fire Chief Robert Silvia will temporarily oversee public safety for the town, while Deputy Police Chief Bill Quigley will manage day-to-day operations at the Police Department, Milanoski said.
