Overtime Scandal Within Mass State Police

posted by John Baibak - 

Several Massachusetts state troopers  are under investigation for overtime abuse.  

Colonel Kerry Gilpin says  that as a result of an audit of overtime patrols on the Massachusetts  Turnpike, 19 members of Troop E face internal duty status hearings.  

Those under investigation hold ranks including troopers, sergeants and  lieutenants.  

One trooper that would have been scheduled for a duty  status hearing has retired and another is suspended without pay for a  separate matter.  

The results of the audit have been sent to Attorney  General Maura Healey for further investigation.

Neither the Attorney General, nor the Governor have commented yet.
