In 2019, the Division of State Police Oversight undertook a variety of reviews and investigations to fulfill its statutory mandate to monitor the quality, efficiency and integrity of the operations of the Massachusetts State Police. This included a review of the State Police’s travel time policy, an examination of the administration of paid details by the State Police and a preliminary audit of State Police overtime shifts. As a result of these projects, the Division identified opportunities to substantially reduce costs and mitigate risk within areas of the State Police. Updates on the efforts of the State Police to achieve certification and to modernize and centralize its systems are also contained within the Annual Report.
