Audit of Pittsburgh Police Confiscated Narcotics Proceeds Trust Fund and Imprest Fund finds poor bookkeeping, but no major impropriety

Pittsburgh City Controller Michael Lamb released an audit of the Pittsburgh Police Confiscated Narcotics Proceeds Trust Fund and Imprest Fund on Thursday. The good news, according to Lamb, is that there’s no sign of missing funds. The bad news: the controller’s office found some bookkeeping issues.      

The narcotics trust fund was established by Pittsburgh City Council in 1985 with the imprest fund following in 1987. Its purpose was to provide a place for money seized in narcotics investigations.
