Former Waltham police chief Thomas LaCroix has filed paperwork to receive pension benefits, Waltham Retirement Board officials say.

LaCroix submitted his retirement benefits application after a Concord District Court jury found him guilty of twice assaulting his wife Andrea in their Maynard home on June 12 last year. He resigned from his post July 10, the same day Judge J. Elizabeth Cremens sentenced him to a year and a half of probation.

LaCroix submitted the pension paperwork July 11, the day after his sentencing, said Joseph Juppé, Waltham Retirement Board director.

LaCroix, 50, worked for the Waltham Police Departmen for 26 years and was appointed chief in 2007. According to city payroll records, LaCroix collected $182,358 in salary and other benefits last year.
