An audit found nearly two dozen instances in which Prescott Valley police dismissed photo-enforcement violations involving their family members.
The Daily Courier reports that the audit report by public safety consultant John Wintersteen found 22 cases involving family members who set off the photo cameras by driving at least 11 mph faster than the posted speed limit.
In response, police have ordered an investigation of a sergeant and his supervisor.
The investigation could lead to disciplinary actions against both men.
The report says the sergeant admitted to dismissing seven violations involving his wife over a four-year period.
The town hired Wintersteen to conduct the review after officials got an anonymous tip that Prescott Valley police were dismissing photo enforcement citations for officers and their families.
