A former Detroit Police officer pleaded guilty Monday to charges stemming from forging overtime sheets to collect nearly $30,000 for hours she never worked, U.S. Attorney Barbara L. McQuade said.
Why did it take so long to catch her?
That's a good question. Kim Mosby-Colbert was the time keeper at the Southwest District. She would put in an hour or two of overtime and the lazy commander just signed it by mistake with the other hours. Then, since she controlled the sheets, she would add a zero to make it 10 hours. The commander got replaced three years ago. The new commander did an audit, probably to protect himself, and found this clerk getting $20,000 per year in overtime. He knew that was wrong and called for an internal investigation, which proved the fraud.
She probably stole over $60,000 and may pay back about $30K. The bigger question is how many others were similarly taking advantage of the previous commander? They go unpunished.
To answer your question: It was mostly an accident that she got caught at all.
