Embattled highly-paid Massachusetts police chief retires – Boston News, Weather, Sports | WHDH 7News

A Massachusetts police chief who was placed on administrative leave last month following the release of a state Inspector General report that found irregularities with the way the city handled the contract that led him to becoming one of the highest paid police chiefs in the nation has retired.

Methuen Chief Joseph Solomon announced his retirement in a letter to Mayor Neil Perry on Monday, The Eagle-Tribune reported.

Inspector General Glenn Cunha wrote that his office “found a failure of leadership at all levels” regarding contracts approved for Solomon and other high-ranking members of the department in 2017 under a previous mayor.

Solomon has denied wrongdoing and in his letter cited “the ceaseless baseless attacks on my integrity, together with the constant political interference” as reasons for his retirement.
