CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The New Hampshire Attorney General’s office is releasing the names of dozens of police officers who were mistakenly told they had passed an assessment to administer a device that tests a person’s blood-alcohol content.

The state Attorney General’s office released 64 police officer names, their respective departments and dates of their false positive test scores.

Deputy Attorney General Ann Rice says the erroneous test results means any drunk-driving cases handled by these officers will be scrutinized.

Rice said technological “anomalies” in the electronic recertification process caused the false positives even though they hadn’t completed the test. She says the state will not use the online exam to recertify officers in the future.
