State audit: Yonkers PD mishandling overtime for officers

The state comptroller's audit of the Yonkers Police Department was released today, giving a scathing review of the department's overtime procedures.

The audit discovered more than 30 officers that made more than $200,000 a year through overtime.

The report claims that the department's overtime policies are ineffective and management is doing nothing to stop it.

The department claims that the overtime is helping to reduce crime in the city.

In the report, the agency made recommendations of hiring more officers to reduce overtime expenses and drafting a corrective plan of action to reduce the abuse within three months.
