Boston's chief taxi regulator has been suspended.
On Friday, the Boston Police Department said Mark Cohen, director of its Hackney Unit, "has been placed on paid administrative leave as a result of an internal complaint."
BPD added that the "allegations bring into question the overall management of the Hackney Unit."
The department said Cohen, a 28-year BPD employee, will remain on leave until a "full review of the Hackney Unit is completed."
Friday's suspension follows a recent Boston Globe series examining alleged corruption within the city's taxi industry.
