I was a police officer in a Mass town for 18 years. I got divorced and had problems to say the least,mostly alcohol. I was put on a stress leave and ordered to go to a psych. returned to the job in June 06. A ne w chief had taken over, basically ignored recommendations of psych. My alcohol problem was well documented and the new guy actuaslly encouraged my abuse ,by taking me out ,drinking after work, Long story short I had an altercation off-duty,with a fellow officer , while in a stuper and was suspended for 5 days and eventually forced to resign, Thankfully since that time (July 1 2007) I have turned my life around. I applied for reinstatement and was denied ,do I have a case on the town failing to act ,and ignoring the issue ??? Just want my job back that I loved and was very good at? Any direction would be appreciated.
