The two Newton Police offers were sent to Watertown to assist with logistics at the funeral of Boston Fire Lieutenant Edward Walsh Jr., Ellen Ishkanian reports in today’s Globe.

[Newton Police Association president Eddie] LaValle said he understands how bad it looks for the Newton police union to complain about lending a hand to help with traffic and logistics at the funeral of a firefighter from a neighboring town, who was killed in the line of duty.

But, he said, as union president he had no choice but to object to the chief making a decision to use officers scheduled for a day off to assist in another town.
