Not many people know this, but Nebraska State Law does not require that County Deputies who serve papers do not have to report to the Sheriff or County Board what they are billing Attorneys (and ultimately the clients of those Attorneys) for mileage. Every other County Employee has to file a claim reporting beginning and ending mileage EXCEPT for Deputies who serve papers. Does this mean that Deputies are sooooo honest that they would never engage in Billing Fraud?!? Who is kidding who? There are Officers who are caught stealing all the time! The problem is that the Law ENABLES Deputies to steal because they are accountable to NOBODY. I know, some of you who read this might say, "But what about the Auditors?". Forget it, the State Auditors don't reverse engineer mileage and even if they saw that Deputies were pocketing huge amounts of money they would dismiss themselves of the responsibility of reporting it to the State Patrol with, "We are not a Law Enforcement Agency". So if Deputies want to steal, they get to steal, thanks to the Law Makers at the Nebraska State Legislature.
