GRAND FORKS AIR FORCE BASE - A total 48 Grand Forks Air Force Base airmen were penalized after base officials investigated allegations of one airmen sharing test materials, the air base said in a news release Thursday.
Air traffic control airmen of the 319th Operations Support Squadron received “various degrees of administrative and punitive action” that included letters of counseling, reprimand and non-judicial punishment, as well as demotions, the air base said.
The investigation determined the Grand Forks Air Traffic Control system is conducting a safe operation and that “at no time was the safety, security or effectiveness of the air traffic control mission ever in jeopardy.”
Gen. Darren W. McDew directed the investigation after an airman was found to have images of test materials and shared them with other airmen, the release said.
A three-man team of air traffic control experts re-inspected the squadron’s standardization, evaluation and training programs. Base leaders used the results of the investigation to strengthen testing procedures, security and oversight at the facility.
