Highway Patrol says no one cheated on exam, moves ahead with promotions
The State Highway Patrol said Tuesday that it is moving ahead with its annual promotions after determining that no one cheated during a June test.Posted — Updated
An internal investigation determined that confidentiality provisions were breached when promotion scores and rankings were improperly released before the promotion list was published, McNeill said Tuesday.
"However, there is no evidence the integrity of the testing process itself was compromised," he said in a statement.
No one was found to have disclosed or received test questions or answers or cheated on the exam, he said.
A separate investigation by N.C. State concluded that, while the promotion list was prematurely disclosed, the list was still valid, McNeill said.
"All allegations of impropriety are taken seriously and appropriately addressed," he said. "We are committed to having a strong process and will continue reviewing best practices as we move forward."
The promotion process has since been shifted to the patrol's Professional Standards Section.
