The director of the agency that oversees parking enforcement in Prince George’s County says a parking officer indicted Tuesday for issuing false tickets might have been trying to cover up a lack of work — not attempting to meet quotas.
Mr. Shapiro said that based on performance measures, supervisors would notice “large gaps in service” in the case that an officer was not working during a shift.
"The Revenue Authority takes these charges very seriously and I am pleased that the oversight mechanisms that are in place worked in this particular case," Executive Director Peter Shapiro said in a statement issued with the announcement of Mr. Budd's indictment.
