Police Sergeant suspended for second time

HOLYOKE, Mass. (WWLP) – A Holyoke police sergeant has been suspended for the second time in a little more than two years for misplacing a department gun.

Chief James Neiswanger said that Sgt. John Hart was suspended ten days without pay for leaving his gun in a restroom at the Holyoke Mall in November. The weapon was recovered.

Hart was suspended for five days without pay in December 2011 for losing a department issued sniper rifle in September of that year. The rifle was recovered months later.
