Public Safety Director Seeking Information About Cheating Scandal
Indianapolis' Public Safety Director David Wantz confirmed to reporters today that he has placed promotions within the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department on hold following a tip he received that some police officers had access to test questions and answers in advance of taking it. An unprecedented number of officers scored perfect scores on the exam. According to a report by WTHR's Steve Jefferson, there were 14 officers who scored 100% and several others who scored 99%. That has never happened before according to senior police officers. Police officers with knowledge of the cheating scandal have a duty to come forward and speak to Wantz. The cheaters and their enablers need to be exposed and face appropriate discipline for their actions.
