Senior members of the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department are under investigation for allegedly forging training documents for personal gain, according to officials.

The department has completed its investigation and the case will be forwarded to the District Attorney’s office next week, Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman Cindy Beavers said Friday.

The investigated officials reportedly granted Peace Officer Standards and Training credit and certificates to deputies who hadn’t actually attended the training. Deputies who complete POST receive additional pay.

The District Attorney’s office will ultimately decide whether or not grand theft charges will be filed against those involved, Beavers said.
