Description

The Kansas City Star uncovers that for more than 50 years, the Kansas City Police Department had a multi-million dollar secret: a slush fund known as the Treasurer's Account or "T-account." The three-day series revealed that while local police had been lobbying for more public money and tax increases to fight crime and hire more offficers, the department secretly had stockpiled as much as $9 million a year for high-ranking officers to use at their leisure.
