CAM­BRIDGE — Cam­bridge Po­lice Chief Daniel Dvo­rak re­turned to duty with the depart­ment Tues­day af­ter a brief time on ad­min­is­tra­tive leave.

Ac­cord­ing to a Cam­bridge po­lice press re­lease, Dvo­rak was re­in­stated Tues­day, Aug. 30, af­ter he was placed on ad­min­is­tra­tive leave Thurs­day, Aug. 25, for a per­son­nel mat­ter.

“Last week, some con­cerns were raised about equip­ment in my pos­ses­sion that I used in my com­puter man­age­ment role with the New­port Po­lice Depart­ment,” Dvo­rak said in a writ­ten state­ment. “I was placed on ad­min­is­tra­tive leave while this was in­ves­ti­gated. Once I re­ceived a state­ment from New­port con­firm­ing I was au­tho­rized to pos­sess this equip­ment I was re­in­stated.

“All cases such as this must be in­ves­ti­gated com­pletely, and un­for­tu­nately to do it prop­erly it must be done con­fi­den­tially,” he said. “I am very pleased to be back to work so I can con­tinue to serve as your po­lice chief.”

A 23-year law en­force­ment vet­eran, Dvo­rak was brought on as chief in Jan­uary 2015 af­ter the re­tire­ment of Chief Ken­neth Ma­lik. He was se­lected by a com­mit­tee of city of­fi­cials and res­i­dents from a list of 30 who had ap­plied for the po­si­tion.

Dvo­rak served the New­port Po­lice Depart­ment in Rhode Is­land be­fore com­ing to Cam­bridge.
