BOSTON (CBS) – The new Superintendent and Colonel of the Massachusetts State Police will launch a probe into changes made to a report after the arrest of a judge’s daughter, the State Police announced Thursday.

Col. Kerry Gilpin will also conduct a review of the department’s policies and regulations, said State Police spokesman Dave Procopio in a statement.

“This effort will inform the colonel with regard to actions taken by state police officials,” Procopio said. “Additionally, the review of policies and regulations will identify whether additional clarification, training, and guidance is necessary in the writing and reviewing of report narratives. The results of this investigation and review will determine whether further action is required.”

The announcement comes one day after Gilpin, formerly the Deputy Division Commander of the Division of Standards and Training and a 23-year State Police veteran, took over the job effective immediately Wednesday.

Her appointment comes after the retirements of Colonel Richard McKeon and Deputy Superintendent Francis Hughes amid claims that a trooper was told to change a report of the daughter of Dudley District Judge Timothy Bibaud.

Alli Bibaud, 30, the judge’s daughter, was arrested on drug charges after crashing her car in Worcester last month. McKeon admitted to ordering changes be made to the report.

McKeon and Hughes retired after troopers Ali Rei and Ryan Sceviour decided to sue McKeon and the State Police.

According to police reports, Bibaud admitted to using heroin and told police, “My father is an (expletive) judge. He’s going to kill me.” Her father is Dudley District Court Judge Timothy Bibaud. The reports also said Ms. Bibaud admitted to performing sex acts on men for drugs.

Days later, the troopers say they were ordered to remove references to sex and the judge, something the troopers’ attorney call “illegal.”

Trooper Dana Pullman, president of the State Police Association of Massachusetts, said he does not believe the recent retirements serve as vindication for the troopers who sued over the edited reports.

“No. I don’t know if that’s vindication or not,” Pullman said. “I think people make choices based on what they know.”
