The buses are all present and accounted for, but the manner in which possession of the government property has been transferred between agencies has caused concern for managers.
The coppers have a couple of the exploding buses at a desert location where they will be used for–EXPLOSIVE training–and some SWAT team exercises. Boise Police command staff said they were unaware of the buses and explained they were acquired by an officer within the ranks.
Same is true with the two buses the fire department has at the airport training facility. A captain in charge of extrication accepted them on behalf of the department, but apparently never made it known to the white shirts.
Bottom line, the four “missing buses” are now accounted for. It does look like all the agencies involved are now aware they need to do a better job of record keeping and making the folks at the top aware of what items are coming and going.
