The psychological firm that evaluates the mental health of cops in Baltimore is under investigation by the city for improperly administering the evaluations.

According to the Associated Press, Psychology Consultants Associated was completing the officer mental health evaluations in 15 minutes instead of the mandated 45 minutes.

PCA is the city’s only contractor for the mental evaluation of the police force, and Baltimore’s law department and inspector general are both looking into the firm’s practices. PCA had previously evaluated a lieutenant charged in the killing of Freddie Gray, the AP reports.

The city’s contract with PCA will remain in place while the investigation continues.
