The Pennsylvania State Police investigate its own troopers for officer-involved shootings. Only once since 2008 was a shooting deemed improper. All others were justified, though almost no public information on investigations has been released. The police declined to even say how many residents were killed. Relatedly, we investigated the lack of transparency in internal discipline and how officers are rarely fired, despite dozens of potentially fireable offenses outlined in internal reports.
