Inspectors find evidence of possible cheating on Y-12 security tests


OAK RIDGE (WATE) - Y-12 nuclear weapons plant security contractor WSI says it will investigate after test questions connected with an inspection were released to employees.

Inspectors from the Department of Energy's Office of Health, Safety and Security were conducting a top-to-bottom security review at Y-12 last week when they found copies of security quizzes and answers along with other inspection materials in a plant patrol car.

Y-12 and its security protocols have been under scrutiny since peace protesters were arrested for trespassing and damaging a building at the complex in July.

A report released last week showed security lapses like broken equipment and a timid response to the protestors' incident.

WSI says it's trying to determine if the test questions were handed out to give employees an advantage, or if it was unintentional.
