SEATTLE -- The state police academy is rewriting the tests for recruits because some apparently have been using a study guide with the test questions and answers.

The director of the Basic Law Enforcement Academy in Burien, Sue Rahr, said in a statement Sunday she was deeply disappointed in recruits who used or had knowledge of the material.

The Seattle Times reports the unauthorized study material was reported Thursday by one recruit.

The academy is operating as if all tests have been compromised. Recruits in two classes in question will have to pass new tests to graduate.

The written test is just one step in becoming a police officer. Rahr says it's unlikely the compromised test materials would allow an unqualified candidate to pass.
