    An internal audit has revealed more than $2,000 is missing from an employee morale fund.

    An internal audit of the Dallas Police Department has uncovered that more than $2,000 is missing from the department's employee morale fund, the city said.

    According to the two-year audit released Monday by the city of Dallas, auditors found "approximately $2,200 in EMF funds that were allocated to DPD units for EMF purposes could not be verified as properly spent or returned for deposit."

    The audit also cites questionable purchases from the fund, which provides things such as holiday meals to police officers and civilians within the department. 

    The account is funded largely by vending machines and collects about $28,000 per year.

    Dallas police Chief David Kunkle requested the audit. Based on its findings, he has enacted changes in how the account is handled to ensure more accountability in financial transactions.
