The Atlanta Public Schools’ police chief said disciplinary proceedings are coming for 18 employees after officers admitted to receiving answers on a state test. 

Chief Ronald Applin requested an outside investigation after a WSB-TV reporter, acting on a tip, inquired about allegations of cheating on a test required to access a computerized network of state and federal criminal databases. 

During the investigation, officers admitted to receiving answers from a dispatcher. 

Applin said punishment could range from a written reprimand to dismissal. APS also sent the findings to the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office, which would determine if it should be investigated as a criminal matter.
