On leave, chief got longevity bonus

Suspended Waltham Police Chief Thomas LaCroix collected $182,358 in salary and other benefits last year, including a $16,814 longevity bonus he received after he was arrested for allegedly assaulting his wife, according to city payroll records.

LaCroix had been scheduled to go on trial last week in Concord District Court, but the proceeding was postponed until late June, according to the Middlesex district attorney’s office. He is facing charges that he assaulted his wife and a female neighbor in separate incidents in Maynard last summer.
