About Nikki Haley’s Probation Agency …

Earlier today, this website broke the news of $3.8 million in missing money at the S.C. Department of Probation Parole and Pardon Services (SCDPPPS), one of the chronically mismanaged agencies in S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley’s cabinet. This money was earmarked for new agents, but a recently released audit from the S.C….

Earlier today, this website broke the news of $3.8 million in missing money at the S.C. Department of Probation Parole and Pardon Services (SCDPPPS), one of the chronically mismanaged agencies in S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley’s cabinet.

This money was earmarked for new agents, but a recently released audit from the S.C. Legislative Audit Council (SCLAC) – which was previewed in our exclusive report – revealed that SCDPPPS didn’t hire any new agents.

“We reviewed agency expenditures and human resources data but did not find an increase in staff,” the audit noted, adding that “a portion of these funds were used to increase the agency’s cash reserve.”

Wait … increase its “cash reserve?” SCDPPPS is slated to receive an additional $2 million in its FY 2013-14 budget … why would it need to increase its “cash reserve?”

And more importantly … where did the rest of the money go?

Our network of sources has some ideas …

According to SCDPPPS staffers, the agency’s leader – a Barack Obama-loving liberal named Kela Thomas – has been blowing money like it’s going out of style on all sorts of things. Among them? Brand new Chevy Tahoes (which start at around $40,000). In fact several of these vehicles were photographed at the agency’s Devine Street headquarters in downtown Columbia, S.C. today.

Take a look …

Another source at the agency tells FITS that Thomas redecorated her office within the last month, spending an untold amount of state funds on new furniture.

Wow …

Guess we know where at least some of that “missing” cash went.

Kela Thomas has some serious explaining to do … yet again. In the past she has blocked common sense consolidation plans – including a proposal offered Haley – and has also allegedly engaged in racist hiring practices. This flagrant misappropriation of taxpayer resources ought to be the final nail in her coffin …

Pardon me for being late to the Circus but I thought one of the reasons for placing Agencies under the Governor was so the Governor could eliminate duplication of services/programs and save taxpayers money using consolidation without having to seek and obtain Legislative approval

What’s that. Speak up. I can’t hear you. Say that again

This woman better be fired and indicted for felonies. The Dept of Probation and Parole has always been out of control. They once tried to revoke a persons probation and send them to prison simply because that probationer exercised a 1st amendment right by filing a petition with a school district within the state of South Carolina. It was not until the attorney for the probation dept and other high ranking probation agents were threaten with a civil rights lawsuit, criminal charges for civil rights violations, etc, that they backed way off. On another matter, the Probation dept got in trouble with the DOJ and then Senator Glenn McConnells office on another serious felony act committed by probation agents. Agents were faced with 5 years in state prison and 5 years in federal prison. They got slapped on the back of the hand and it was swept under the rug. A couple of detective chiefs for local law enforcement knew all about it as well as SLED.
No more can these out of control lawless rogues get away with this kind of conduct that Will reports on. People who do stuff like this must be punished with jail time.

No surprise to me that she was a USC ‘development’ employee. What experience that could have possibly given her to run an LE agency, we’ll never know. Enough is enough.

Dude, I’m totally with you on the gist of this article, but you gotta get your facts straight or people will use the fact that you don’t to beat you up and deflect your perfectly valid criticisms. Those are law enforcement Tahoes used by field PPP agents, and they don’t “start at $40,000.” They start (and end) at the state contract / Procurement Services price of $27,432. Here’s the link-

http://procurement.sc.gov/PS/agency/PS-agency-goods-and-services.phtm
Go to “Vehicles,” then “Vehicles – law enforcement” and look under the full size SUV’s. They’re actually great for field use, get much better mileage these days, and with the LE package (lowered suspension, road tires, etc.) handle almost as well as the sedans.
As for the tags (which a few folks commented upon), it is standard practice to run confidential tags on unmarked field law enforcement vehicles not assigned to patrol or first responder duties. This is true in most states, not just backwards little SC.

Actually, you are wrong. While AIC’s do get a take home car, the Richland AIC will not be getting the Tahoe. Also, all cars are on the field car list, even the AIC’s. If an agent needs a vehicle for work, they have the option to use the AIC’s car. Of course it is saved for the AIC or the last one taken, but if work needs to be done, they can use ANY vehicle available.

Fits,

Why don’t you ask PPP what their recidivism rate is? Their answer will be that they don’t track it.

The effectiveness of criminal justice programs is measured by whether the people being “served” go on to commit more crimes in the future yet the PPP claims they don’t even measure their performance using this important metric. Why not? Because they are a terribly-managed agency with suspect performance that in reality should be folded into SCDC.

“Will the real Kela Shady please stand up, please stand up, please stand up.” Now Kela the Steala is telling her staff not to believe the LAC’s lies because their findings are politically motivated by people who want her agency to be merged with DOC. But wait a minute . . . I though Thomas supports the Governor’s merger plans . . .
Oh well, she couldn’t shoot straight on the firing range. No reason to expect she would shoot straight now.

This Director and EMT are bullies. They have ran PPP as dictators. What will it take for Governor Haley to remove this narcism woman and her clan of thugs. Will it take another law suit or will it take more people to leave PPP.
