The Town of Cohasset has decided not to renew Police Chief Mark DeLuca’s contract.
DeLuca was put on paid administrative leave back in May when Cohasset officials were presented with a list of complaints which allege that DeLuca forged important documents, secured benefits that he wasn’t entitled to, and physically abused others in the police department.
A letter dated October 19th was sent by Acting Town Manager Mike Milanoski and was signed off by DeLuca. However, the letter was just recently released.
DeLuca will remain on administrative leave until his three-year contract expires on January 24th. He was hired as Cohasset’s Police Chief in 2010.
Deputy Chief Bill Quigley has taken on the role of Acting Police Chief in DeLuca’s absence.
WATD will be filing a Freedom of Information Request with the Town of Cohasset in order to receive details about the investigation into DeLuca.
