Testing covering the recently amended Domestic Investigations and Operations Guide is to commence in the “coming weeks,” according to the Main Justice blog.

The Justice Department’s inspector general concluded last year that a “significant number” of the 14,000 agents cheated on the required, open-book test given in 2009.
