Court of Auditors finds “significant deviations” in weapons inventory in Aschersleben

According to the rector, in order to find the weapons, the police academy contacted former employees who were responsible for the safekeeping of firearms and other weapons. The missing firearms are said to have been loaned to the police academy from the LKA’s so-called comparative weapons collection. The collection serves police officers as teaching and visual material.

According to the report, Saxony-Anhalt’s audit office had discovered “significant deviations in the weapons inventory of the teaching materials collection” during an on-site inspection. Weapons that, according to the files, should have been in the custody of the university could not be presented.
