By Maria Cramer

BOSTON — Eleven Boston police officers have been disciplined for their role in a steroids scandal that humiliated the department, forced officials to tighten their drug policies, and resulted in prison time for four patrolmen.

The disciplined officers, seven of whom admitted to using steroids at some point in their careers, received punishments ranging from a written reprimand to a 45-day suspension without pay. But none of the officers were fired and none will face criminal charges, Boston Police Commissioner Edward F. Davis said today.
