Two Boston police supervisors were placed on leave over allegations of overtime abuse, authorities announced Friday.

The unidentified officers, who were assigned to the department's evidence management unit, were placed on leave Feb. 15 due to time and attendance issues, the Boston Police Department said in a statement.

The department's internal affairs unit is investigating the case, which has also been referred to the Suffolk County district attorney's office, the statement said.  The department will also review payroll for all of its districts and units.

The department is confident the integrity of evidence in storage was not affected, police said.

"This alleged behavior is unacceptable for any member of the Boston Police Department,"Commissioner William Gross said in a statement. "As Commissioner, I want to make it clear to every officer that any action that goes against our rules and regulations will not be tolerated - without exception."
