Grant to the Louisville, Mississippi, School District
The Office of the Inspector General, Audit Division, has completed an audit of the Universal Hiring Program (UHP) grant awarded by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS), to the Louisville, Mississippi, School District (Louisville School District). The Louisville School District received a UHP grant of $47,329 (No. 96-UM-WX-1298) to hire one additional officer and a supplemental UHP grant of $47,330 for another officer. The purpose of the additional officers is to enhance community policing efforts within the school's environment.
In brief, the Louisville School District did not maintain time and attendance records in a manner to adequately support the officer's pay; therefore, related salaries and fringes totaling $12,235 are unsupported.
