Clarification On Probe Of Pittsburgh Police Funds
PITTSBURGH, Pa. (2/19/13)--An investigation into misappropriation of funds at the Pittsburgh Police Department does not involve Greater Pittsburgh Police CU, according to Karen Janoski, CEO of the credit union.

Janoski contacted News Now seeking clarification of News Now's story Tuesday, which had said that the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Internal Revenue Service had confiscated financial records of police department accounts at the credit union.

The investigation is against the police department--not the credit union, which was simply caught up in a widening search for evidence because it is the financial institution of certain accountholders.

"The credit union received a subpoena, and we carried our compliance with the subpoena, just as any credit union does in any investigation," she told News Now.  The authorities "did not come into the credit union and remove boxes of records or confiscate anything."
