The Fraternal Order of Police has finally received the results of the Freedom of Information Act request they’ve been trying to pry from the District on what Peaceoholics is doing with dollars provided to the organization via the Metropolitan Police Department—and it’s a doozy.
A cursory glance of the documents, provided to City Paper by the FOP, shows a portion of the budget for a program connected to the organization went toward a video game set up that we should all be envious of. Peaceoholics bought an Xbox, Xbox games, Nintendo Wii controllers and a 32-inch television for a rec center game room. A big chunk of the funding the organization has received appears to have gone toward salaries.
The documents City Paper will be digging through may not show all the money that has gone to the organization, but we will continue to comb it for more revelations.
