REVERE (CBS) – A Revere Police sergeant has been suspended and demoted as the result of a WBZ-TV I-Team investigation.

The I-Team tracked Sgt. Jeffrey Langone over a period of six months and discovered he was routinely hiding out at his parents’ home during his overnight shift. The report prompted an internal investigation.

On Friday, Chief Joseph Cafarelli told WBZ-TV’s Karen Anderson that Sgt. Langone has been suspended for 30 days without pay and reduced from Sgt. to patrolman.

Chief Cafarelli previously said he would be installing GPS units in all of the police department’s cruisers and would conduct mileage checks after every shift.
