Police failed to track government-owned take-home vehicles

An investigation by Daniel Chacón of The Gazette (Colorado Springs, Colo.) found that the "Colorado Springs Police Department’s tracking of dozens of take-home government-owned vehicles is so incomplete no one can say if officers are using them to respond to emergencies, commuting or personal errands."  The police department was not aware of the issue until The Gazette made an open-records request for the information.
