Baltimore officials are accusing the company that was supposed to evaluate the mental health of Baltimore police officers of rushing through the process.
According to The Baltimore Sun, Psychology Consultants Associated may have let officers serve after as little as 15 minutes of screening. The paper says the city's inspector general and legal departments are investigating PCA, which the city has relied on since 2005.
The city's police department is already facing scrutiny after the death of Freddie Gray in police custody in April sparked outrage. (Video via WMAR)
