Audit Report Critical of Missouri's Homeland Security

MAY 12, 2006 - Posted at 8:59 a.m. CST

 

ST. LOUIS, MO - State Auditor Claire McCaskill says Missouri has lagged behind neighboring states in establishing a center designed to investigate states in establishing a center designed to investigate and prevent potential terrorist threats.

The finding was part of an audit of Missouri's homeland security program.

It also revealed that some federally provided protective gear was left in its original packaging unopened because no one knew how to use it.

However, one law enforcement agency used the protective attire for a hunting expedition.

The audit found seven major areas of deficiency and covered two years that ended June 2005, a period that straddled the Holden and Blunt administrations.

Mark James, the director of public safety, which oversees homeland security, says all of the recommendations have been addressed.
