Howard is quoted in this Boston Globe article: Private eye faced 40 complaints when he was with Boston police. A former Boston police officer is now a private investigator despite having accumulated 40 internal affairs complaints from civilians and fellow officers. The charges included untruthfulness, unreasonable judgment, and improper use of force. The Massachusetts State Police does not consider a former officer’s history of complaints when granting a PI license. Private investigators should be held to a high standard of truthfulness.
