BOSTON — Vowing to bolster his department’s legitimacy in the eyes of the public, Boston Police Commissioner Edward F. Davis is finalizing a new policy that allows him to fire any cop caught lying in the line of duty.
“This is a no-brainer - everybody understands truthfulness is fundamental to being a police officer,” Davis told the Herald in an interview Friday.
