City Will Not Terminate Randall – Hearing Has Been Postponed Indefinitely

A termination hearing for Revere Police Officer Todd Randall has been continued indefinitely, according to Mayor Tom Ambrosino.

Ambrosino said last week that he would schedule the hearing on Monday before leaving on vacation. The hearing would have been for the purpose of terminating Officer Randall from the force in the wake of allegations by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The FBI has charged Randall with lying to investigators about trying to “fix” court cases in Chelsea District Court.

Ambrosino said that no action would be taken, that Randall would remain a City employee, and that he would be on unpaid administrative leave until the conclusion of his criminal trial.

“The hearing has been continued indefinitely,” he said. “That’s the resolution until his criminal matter is resolved…We’ll resolve the local disciplinary issue once the criminal case has been decided. Its resolution will likely decide the resolution of the local disciplinary action, in any event.”

Randall is being represented by Attorney Tim Flaherty, who unsuccessfully ran for state senate in Revere twice last year.

Many had expected the mayor to take quick action in removing Randall, especially since he had run afoul of department rules just last fall – serving a suspension at that time.

It didn’t pan out that way though.

    todd randal was a fine police officer i think the mayor made the right decision there are many police officers out there doin things so immorally wrong why not work on that FBI this is a sad reminder that the FBI has no clue on the amount of bs done by the bottom of the barrel officers get a hold on putting an excellant cop under the gun there is much worse out there Once again todd randall is a wonderful police officer an has always been one of the few officers you could trust in knowing he did his job beyond the best he could

    Fire them all and start over, it”s a barrel of rotten apples, A chief that would not and does not live in our town. no police patrolling the streets,the statue in front of the library was swipt. the only police to be seen are at Bjs playing games with their phones or at const. sites doing nothing and none wearing a cover,if so it is a baseball cap.what proof you need? a picture is worth a thousand words, the F.B.I. has both.
