Jacksonville Tightens License Plate Security Following Employee Theft

August 14, 2017

The City of Jacksonville, Fla., is tightening security of its city fleet license plates and fleet compound after a fleet employee was charged with theft of a license plate.

An investigation by the Office of Inspector General (OIG) found a fleet crew leader had driven a personal vehicle with a fleet license plate to work twice in late 2016. The State Attorney’s Office charged the employee with theft of the city license plate. The crew leader signed a deferred prosecution agreement that required the completion of 20 hours of community service and payment of $650 in court costs.

The OIG’s investigation recommended the city fleet improve security of its license plates, improve procedures regarding surrender of decommissioned plates to the Tax Collector’s office, and improve security of vehicles parked in the fleet compound.

The Finance and Administration Department, of which Fleet Management is a division, responded that it has complied with many of the inspector general’s recommendations.
