Massachusetts State Police Faces Staffing Crisis

Massachusetts State Police are facing a staffing crisis as the department expects to lose about 200 to 250 troopers this year.

State Police Colonel Christopher Mason says 46 troopers have been re-assigned from investigative units to patrol because staffing is tight. 

He pointed to anti-police sentiment and increasing retirements after several scandals rocked the department as part of the reasons behind the staffing shortage.
