Boston police superintendent under fire
By Donovan Slack
BOSTON — The second in charge at the Boston Police Department took a leave of absence yesterday amid questions over whether he inappropriately pressured the head of the city's Police Academy to overlook a suspected affair between a drill instructor and a female recruit, say two public officials.
Robert P. Dunford, 64, a tough-talking Dorchester native who has risen through the ranks to become the sometimes controversial superintendent in chief, allegedly intervened on behalf of a friend, creating what one official described as a "complicated mess."
