Several former Arizona State University campus police officers are suing the school for discrimination, saying they were the victims of discrimination and retaliation for not altering data to make the school look safe.
The group, who are joined by one current ASU police employee, filed a civil suit earlier this month.
In the suit, the employees allege supervisors ordered them to change crime statistics to make ASU look like a safe campus.
ASU was among 55 universities investigated last year by the Department of Education for how it deals with sexual assault cases.
ASU officials say they have been served with a copy of the suit and declined to comment.
The former police employees are asking for damages in an amount that would be based on evidence at trial.
