Audit turns up more problems at HPD
AN AUDIT at (what we hope is) the end of HPD Chief Harold Hurtt's tenure has turned up massive problems in HPD's fingerprint unit that could cost millions to correct and will force a review of cases going back at least six years, according to a Houston Chronicle report.
To add insult to injury, the Chron reports that HPD is refusing to release the audit immediately, instead insisting that media file public information requests. This, we presume, is yet another example of the transparency in municipal government that we hear about so often from Mayor White's press shop. *eyeroll*
On a more positive note, Chief Hurtt could be setting himself up nicely to run for District Attorney or City Council!
