E911 supervisor charged with falsifying time logs

December 28, 2018

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Rhode Island State Police say a supervisor for the state’s emergency telephone system has been charged with getting paid for hours he did not work.

State Police Col. Ann Assumpico says 43-year-old Steven Castaldi, of Smithfield, was charged Friday with obtaining money under false pretenses.

Police say Castaldi, a Rhode Island E911 supervisor, altered work time logs for a year to collect more than $2,000 for hours he hadn’t worked.

Castaldi’s attorney, Andrew Dimitri, said Friday he could not comment on the case at this point.

The director of the emergency telephone system requested an investigation. The State Police Financial Crimes Unit arrested Castaldi, who has worked for the agency for 21 years.
