New policy getting personal with troopers

A new zero tolerance policy at the North Carolina Highway Patrol will also scrutinize the personal lives of troopers.In Salisbury, about 100 troopers signed the new code of conduct, which covers everything from integrity to their personal life.

It even tells the troopers to turn over their personal cell phone bills so their superiors can see how much they're chatting while on the job.

They also want to put more cameras in patrol cars to help keep troopers honest.

Recently, troopers have been caught driving drunk, leaving the scene of an accident and sexual misconduct.

The Patrol Commander Colonel Randy Glover and Secretary of Crime Control and Public Safety Reuben Young are in the middle of a two week statewide tour to discuss the policy.

They'll be at Troop C Headquarters on Blue Ridge Road in Raleigh on July 22.
