In Maryland, the state's attorney for Prince George's County initiated an investigation into whether dozens of police cadets in the county cheated on police academy tests.
State's Attorney Glenn Ivey's investigation is based on an internal police department probe in Prince George's County.
The investigation now encompasses 146 officers from three police academy classes since July 2009. At least 34 officers are facing specific cheating allegations.
Ivey says his office is in the process of finding out which cases the officers were on, and making a case by case determination whether the cases should stand or not, he has not said how many cases his office is looking into.
Ivey initiated his investigation after a report in the Washington Post alerted him to the alleged cheating scandal.
Department records show cadets had perfect scores on at least 11 tests measuring basic skills, arrest procedures and how to testify in court.
