RI police, FBI continue review of Sawyer records
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Rhode Island State Police are continuing to examine the financial records of a career training school that closed abruptly to determine whether to open a criminal probe.
Capt. Michael Winquist says the FBI, the U.S. Attorney’s office and the state attorney general’s office are also involved in the inquiry into the closure of the Sawyer School.
State higher education officials removed academic and financial aid records Thursday and are preparing to distribute them to students at a ‘‘transfer fair’’ next week.
The school closed last week with just a few days’ notice. About 300 students in Rhode Island and 1,200 in Connecticut were displaced. Some in Connecticut attended a business school run by the same parent company. An executive there has declined comment.
