New, Unwelcome Question For SDPD: How Has $1M Gone Unaccounted For?

 

 

SDPD Million Dollars Missing

 

 

” There’s yet another mystery now haunting San Diego’s embattled police department: The whereabouts of a million dollars in federal funds that haven’t shown up “on paper.”

  It’s a case that’ll have to be solved by city financial experts and auditors because the cop shop’s numbers don’t square up.

  It may be that somebody didn’t hit a certain number on a keyboard – at least that’s the best City Hall might hope for.

” To me, I’m not worried that it’s a crime; it doesn’t look like that,” said Sean Karafin, CEO of the San Diego County Taxpayers Association. “But it’s more of an issue of why was this not caught? Why has it taken four years for the media to be the ones to find it?”

  The million-dollar discrepancy was turned up by the “U-T Watchdog”, which has been reviewing documents involving U.S. Treasury and Justice Department programs that share “forfeited assets” from drug dealers and other crooks with state and local law enforcement.”
