Gun Controls at Selected State Agencies and Public Authorities

Employees at many State agencies and public authorities are authorized to carry guns. We examined the controls over these guns at the Division of State Police, the Department of Correctional Services, the Division of Parole, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, and the Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation. We found that these State agencies and public authorities had adequate controls for acquiring, issuing, storing and disposing of guns. However, we noted that improvements could be made in some of the recordkeeping systems. We also noted that the Division of State Police and the Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation did not always dispose of confiscated guns as required by law.
