BOSTON (AP) — A Massachusetts trooper led officers on a chase, another took cash under the table for unauthorized police escorts for funeral processions and yet another partied with people connected to organized crime. But none of them were fired.

The Boston Globe reported Sunday that its review of internal affairs files shows the agency rarely fires troopers, almost no matter what they have done.

A spokesperson for Attorney General Maura Healey called the information “highly concerning” and said it “erodes public trust in law enforcement.”
