Universal Hiring Program Grant for the Town of
Glenville, New York, Police Department

April 1998
Office of the Inspector General


We have audited the Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) Universal Hiring Program (UHP) grant awarded to the Town of Glenville, New York, Police Department (Glenville). This grant, Grant Number 96UMWX0984, was for three full-time officers for the period from December 1, 1995 through November 30, 1998. We performed this limited scope audit in response to a request from COPS expressing concerns that Glenville was not conforming with certain grant terms and conditions.

Glenville conformed with grant conditions in that the Town:

However, Glenville requested reimbursement for unallowable salary costs and fringe benefits at rates greater than the Office of Justice Programs (OJP) approved in the financial clearance memorandum it sent Glenville.

As a result of the improper reimbursement requests, we question $3,614 that Glenville has received as reimbursement.
