As an added measure to guard against the misuse of State funds, the
Firefighting Commission and staff will vigorously seek criminal prosecution
through the Attorney General's Office against any individual or individuals it
finds have engaged in fraudulent conduct or false representation in connection
with the completion of training requirements in order to unjustly obtain
educational incentive pay.
Commission will recognize the possibility of inadvertent mistakes involved in a
Department's record keeping, and after close scrutiny of such facts will make
the proper recommendation to such Department involved and seek immediate
reimbursement of such funds erroneously paid due to the Department's oversight.
If such reimbursement is not immediately forthcoming, the Firefighting
Commission and Staff will commence legal action accordingly.
