ASHLAND (CBS) – Ashland Police Chief Scott Rohmer was placed on paid administrative leave Monday amid a number of allegations and conflicts within the department.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Lana Jones reports

Town manager Anthony Schiavi, who has only been on the job for a week, told WBZ NewsRadio 1030 there are some morale issues and that his action is a step toward getting the department moving in a positive and productive direction.

The Ashland Police Union recently took a vote of no confidence in Rohmer after he launched investigations into the conduct of several officers.

Retired Wakefield Police Chief Steve Doherty will become Ashland’s acting chief while the town searches for a permanent replacement.

Lt. David Beaudoin will be in charge until Doherty begins work April 8.
