Senator Galgiani Responds to CDCR Audit Findings & Recommendations

March 18, 2015

SACRAMENTO-Today, the results and recommendations from Senator Galgiani’s California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) audit request were released to the public. “The results of this audit have just confirmed my original suspicions that CDCR did not comply with state laws in hiring retirees specifically in managerial positions. The State Auditor’s office also found that the department did not do a sufficient job in protecting state tax payer dollars by monitoring the use of state-owned vehicles.”

In Federal Court Today, a Motion was filed to allow Senator Galgiani Access to Sealed Documents Regarding the Removal of Missing Persons Records in the related Speed Freak Killers Case.

“It has come to my attention that missing persons records from the related Speed Freak Killers case were deleted by the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office.  This means the ability to identify victims was removed from State and Federal databases, making it impossible for families of missing loved ones to ever have answers.  I have serious questions about why the records were deleted.  I have always believed that the role of law enforcement is to protect and serve, not to remove and destroy evidence.
