    That's not supposed to happen, no. But clearly the aggrieved cop "going rogue" to find his/her loved one's killer is such a trope for film and literature that it's bound to cause confusion.

    It's happened but it always brings up the question of planted evidence.

    It is discouraged in my State.

    It isn't illegal per se. Nearly EVERY department would not allow them to do so in order to avoid the appearance of conflict. Even if they had to bring in a separate jurisdiction to handle the case, even a bad defense attorney would use the situation o argue reasonable doubt.
