Colorado State Patrol criticized for anti-gay culture
DENVER — The Colorado State Patrol has been ordered to change its policies after an administrative law judge found the patrol fostered an anti-gay culture.
The changes were ordered after a former patrol captain admitted he was gay during a polygraph exam. The judge says the questioning was out of line and ordered the patrol to follow its own policies forbidding discrimination.
According to KMGH-TV, the former captain admitted to the judge that he withheld information about his sexual orientation, but the judge ruled that was irrelevant.
A spokesman says the state patrol is reviewing the report.
