Stronger Reporting and Management Structure Would Improve State Bureau of Investigation Vehicle Oversight (November 2012)

Summary

The General Assembly directed the Program Evaluation Division to evaluate fleet management among major law enforcement agencies. This report focuses on the 384 vehicles operated by the Department of Justice's State Bureau of Investigation. Although the bureau implemented policies and procedures related to vehicle operation and had introduced an electronic vehicle information tracking system, the evaluation identified weaknesses associated with a decentralized management structure and gaps in internal controls. The General Assembly should require the Department of Justice to adopt a fleet management approach by strengthening policies and procedures, conducting annual internal vehicle audits, and modifying data reporting and use.
