ATLANTA - Reviews suggest that at least 500 law enforcement officers in Georgia may have lied about fulfilling required training in the last year.

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.

The newspaper reports that law enforcement agencies across the state have been told to investigate whether their officers actually completed required training.

The problem was discovered after the Cumming Police Department reported finding discrepancies in 15 officers' online training records.

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.
