OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL PLANS FOCUS ON PUBLIC SAFETY
The City of New Orleans Inspector General today released its Strategic Plan for 2013-2016. The planned projects focus on public safety, education, and corruption but include continuous monitoring of aviation board procurements and construction, credit card and take-home car usage at selected entities.
The NOPD is the focus of 12 projects including evaluations of the implementation of the new off-duty detail system, the Early Warning System for high-risk officers, and private security districts. The OIG will also audit NOPD payroll, use of grant funds, and Uniform Crime Report data accuracy.
The OIG will evaluate DWI case dispositions and non-cash collections by the Municipal and Traffic Courts, and the Electronic Monitoring Program run by the Orleans Parish Sheriff. The Medical Examiner function performed by the Coroner will be evaluated after that organization has operated in a permanent facility for an extended period.
The OIG also will begin operations at the Orleans Parish School Board by auditing financial controls and use of funds. The RSD Construction Fraud Unit will conduct an on-going deterrence operation under an agreement with the Recovery School District.
