The Boston Police Department reports arresting a patrolman today on a charge of domestic assault with a dangerous weapon.
Police did not provide any further details of the charge against Officer Dana Lamb, a Roslindale resident who has been a patrolman since 1987.
In a statement, Acting Police Commissioner Gregory Long said:
This allegation of domestic violence committed by a Boston Police Officer is extremely disturbing. The Boston Police Department takes all allegations of domestic violence by employees seriously. Domestic violence is unacceptable in society.
Lamb was last in the news in 2020 when he was investigated for non-compliance with regulations related to BPD's then new body cameras.
