The police academy run by Prince George's Community College has been barred from administering new police training classes.

Rookie police officers are being asked to return to the academy because of bad record keeping. According to the Washington Post, Deputy Director of the Maryland Police and Correctional Training Commissions, Lee Goldman, says the college's records were in "utter disarray."

Goldman says the college couldn't find some training records and did not supervise certain areas of training. He says this is the academy's fault, not the officers.

A total of 21 police agencies, mostly in Prince George's County, have received call backs for new officers. The academy trains 40 to 60 cadets a year during a 24-week course.
