Suburban police officers face dismissal for cheating on test

    Fifteen cops in suburban Philadelphia are facing dismissal for allegedly cheating on a re-certification test back in February 2009. Officers in Delaware and Chester counties lost their badges yesterday.
    The Daily News has the list of officers, who have been voted by the Municipal Police Officers’ Education and Training Commission for permanent revocation, meaning the officers wouldn’t be allowed to work as officers anywhere in the state. They have 30 days to appeal.
