State Police To Closely Monitor Troopers After Recent Arrests

BOSTON (CBS) – With so many troopers on the wrong side of the law, the head of the Massachusetts State Police is trying to put new safeguards in place.

On Saturday, Trooper John Analetto was arrested on charges of extortion and taking part in an illegal gambling ring. He was the third trooper arrested in the last three months.

The State Police are now looking to put a new system in place that would look for warning signs among the ranks.

The changes include a computer system that will scan troopers’ files and look for consistent signs of bad behavior like frequently being late or missing training sessions.

Supervisors may also undergo training to teach them how to look for problems and handle them when they arise.

    Time to re-evaluate job status of Col. McGovern. She appears to be in way over her head. The department appears to be dysfunctional.

    Too bad but it seems like this is happening way too much. Every one of these bad stories takes down ten good deed stories.

    First replace the Internal Coverup Dept with a real Internal Affairs Dept, Second monitor how these above the law troopers interact with the general public and actually look into complaints .

    Note all the arrests are by Federal or local police agencies as the State police does not police their own and thats why they think they can get away with what they do. And they wonder why the public doesn’t respect or trust them.
