New Orleans OIG sets priorities for the coming years

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

The New Orleans Office of the Inspector General plans to focus on for the next few years.

The IG's office will once again evaluate the New Orleans Police Department, particularly how it handles rape investigations.

The inspector general also plans to make operations at the Sewerage and Water Board and funding for the justice system among its top priorities.

The OIG determines which direction its efforts will take using several criteria to determine its priorities.

In order of priority, those are public safety or public health risk, potential revenue increases or cost reductions, concerns expressed by city officials, and sources of widespread public concern.

The strategic plan is for the years 2017 through 2019.
