OH Police Chiefs misuse funds


http://www.daytondailynews.com/news/ohio-news/ohio-police-chiefs-group-misused-5m-homeland-security-audit-finds-1137055.html

COLUMBUS, Ohio — An audit by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's internal watchdog says a police chiefs group in Ohio mishandled nearly $5 million in federal grants.

The Ohio Association of Chiefs of Police received more than half the money allocated to the state through a local police terrorism prevention program.

Homeland Security's Inspector General says $4.8 spent by the association was not allowed under the grant, misclassified, handled outside the grant's timelines or not properly documented.

The watchdog has recommended the federal Emergency Management Agency recoup the money from the state EMA, the local granting authority.

Joe Andrews, a spokesman for the state Public Safety department, tells the Columbus Dispatch Ohio is working with the chiefs group to see if any of the money can be documented.

Now before we jump to conclusions here, we should find out if this was a good faith effort by the chiefs to infuse some money into their force, buy/replace gear and generally use the money to improve services to their citizens, which was not part of the grant guidlines (it was probably to buy something stupid and to invade our privacy) or did they all take their mistresses to Vegas?

One will make me happy, one will make me angry.
