BATON ROUGE (NBC33) — Louisiana State Police missed out on more than three million dollars in revenue over the past two years.
Louisiana’s legislative Auditor says state police hadn’t been charging for background checks on ambulance workers and non-licensed medical professionals.
In 1993, lawmakers passed a law requiring State Police to charge 26 dollars for the background checks, but they haven't been doing that.
An audit released Monday suggests state police did nearly 125,000 background checks at the request of sheriff's offices across the state, but never made them pay.
State Police say they're going to put written procedures in place to make sure they're charging, as required by state law.
