Following an investigation into a deadly 2019 drug raid, nine police officers from the Houston Police Department narcotics squad were discovered to have been stealing overtime money from the department and have since been charged. Although the investigation into the alleged money scheme is ongoing, an audit of the narcotics unit from July 2020 did find that the officers rarely carried out thorough investigations and often overpaid informants for the seizure of minuscule amounts of drugs.
