Report Recommends Improvement To N.C. Highway Patrol Ethical Training

An international consulting firm hired to review the North Carolina Highway Patrol says the agency needs to improve its management, especially in ethical training.

Kroll Inc. released a report Wednesday that determined the
patrol was worthy of its reputation as an elite law enforcement
organization with many high-minded, dedicated workers.

But it suggested improvements be made in agency management,
especially in supervisor training and in instilling ethical
behavior into patrol culture.

The report said first-line supervision is "sub-optimal,"
partly because of supervisors' heavy workloads. The report said
those supervisors are best positioned to anticipate and prevent
problems.

Gov. Mike Easley sought the report after a series of
embarrassing incidents, including some troopers being caught having
sex while on duty.
