Ga. officers may have lied about online training hours

By The Associated Press
ATLANTA - Reviews suggest that at least 500 law enforcement officers in Georgia may have lied about fulfilling required training in the last year. <br /> <br /> The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports the police officers and sheriff's deputies may have taken advantage of a glitch in the new program used for online training courses. <br /> <br /> The newspaper reports that law enforcement agencies across the state have been told to investigate whether their officers actually completed required training. <br /> <br /> The problem was discovered after the Cumming Police Department reported finding discrepancies in 15 officers' online training records. <br /> <br /> The Public Safety Training Center says glitches in the online program either didn't accurately record time spent in training or allowed officers to get credit without actually completing training.
