Plymouth: Police captain disciplined after leaving his weapon unattended

The Plymouth police captain who left his department issued revolver in the bathroom of the Wareham courthouse on January 28, will face disciplinary action.

Twenty days will be an unpaid suspension and ten days will be served as unpaid extra duty.

About David Skill

Dave Skill’s radio career began in the fall of 1964 when he arrived on the campus of Holy Cross College in Worcester, MA. Dave barely got his bags unpacked when he paid a visit to WCHC, the campus radio station. And, before he knew it, he was spending so much time as a disc jockey and news writer/reporter, it seemed like he was majoring in “radio” and minoring in academics at “The Cross”. As you might imagine, his grades reflected it! During his junior and senior years, he also worked weekends in news and as a disc jockey at WNEB, the CBS radio affiliate in Worcester at the time.
