RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — The North Carolina State Highway Patrol is delaying promotions to conduct an investigation into an allegation of cheating.

A news release from the patrol on Friday says it received the allegation on June 20. After meeting with N.C. State University officials the following day, Col. Glenn McNeill decided to initiate an internal affairs investigation. The patrol provided no details of the allegation.

On Wednesday, the patrol announced that the promotional list would not be released on July 1 as expected.

The Highway Patrol partnered with N.C. State to develop the promotional process which consists in part of written exams involving job task scenarios and knowledge of patrol policy and procedures. The exams help create annual promotional lists which usually take effect at the start of each new fiscal year.
