The Office of the Inspector General, Audit Division, has completed an audit of a grant awarded by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS), to the Housing Authority of the Sac & Fox Tribe of Missouri (Housing Authority). The $2,824 grant was to pay overtime for a police officer under the Making Officer Redeployment Effective (MORE) program. The purpose was to enhance community policing efforts.

Our audit determined that:

- The Housing Authority had not requested reimbursement for any overtime costs to the grant at the time our audit. However, there was a $939 invoice pending payment for overtime of which only $58 met the grant condition.

- The Progress Report and Annual Department Report were not submitted to COPS nor were current copies of the quarterly Financial Status Reports filed with the Office of Justice Programs (OJP).
