Former Newton Police Chief Cummings Could Receive $129K Pension
Cummings was fired last month after the city ruled his behavior toward another department employee was "unbecoming a police officer."
Former Newton Police Chief Matthew Cummings, who was fired last month, could receive a pension amount higher than all other current retired employees on Newton's books.
The pension, totaling $129,000, would be the largest yearly pension amount in the city's system, the Boston Globe reported Thursday.
The former chief applied for his retirement last week, the Globe reported.
Cummings' attorney, Timothy Burke, told the Globe Cummings still plans to file an appeal of the city's decision to fire him.
