Guns missing from Houston police room
May 19, 2008
The Houston Chronicle has unearthed documents attesting to the Houston Police Department’s lack of oversight and security in their own precinct. It appears that the Houston PD hired individuals that either had criminal records or no background checks conducted on them and allowed them access to secure areas of the building. Within a six month time period, it was discovered that 30 guns, among other items, were stolen from the department’s property room. You would think that a police department that has sworn to protect its citizens could adequately protect themselves from the very thing they lock people up for every day. Let’s hope that other police stations around the country are doing a better job of securing their facilities from those who do not belong there.
