TYNGSBORO, Mass. — Police Officer Ronald Goulet spent almost 40 work hours over two weeks with his cruiser idle but told his superiors he was patrolling the town, according to an internal-affairs investigation that led to his resignation in January.
Police Chief William Mulligan ordered a global positioning system installed in Goulet's cruiser in early December, following a complaint. Deputy Police Chief Richard Burrows wrote Mulligan that neighbors "stated that some mornings Officer Goulet has to scrape his windshield because it had been parked there so long (overnight)."
