Statement from Jay Gonzalez on Ongoing Scandals at Massachusetts State Police

“In light of the mounting number of scandals, management failures and alleged criminal acts coming out of the Massachusetts State Police, today I am calling on the Inspector General to undertake a top to bottom review of the Department. It is clear that Governor Baker is totally incapable or completely unwilling to oversee the State Police. The Baker administration’s failures have led to fraud, falsified time sheets, falsified citations, embezzlement and general waste of taxpayer resources. An independent review by the Inspector General is needed to restore the public’s confidence in an important agency that has lost that confidence.”
