Port Canaveral Initiates FDLE Probe

July 27, 2014

 

As a result of an internal investigation prompted by concerns raised from employees and in follow-up to prior internal suspicions, the Canaveral Port Authority in May requested the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) to probe improprieties in its parking operations.

The internal investigation began nine months ago with anonymous tips from employees made to the Port CEO and management. Several actions immediately were taken, including implementation of improved oversight procedures and installation of new CCTV at cruise terminal parking booths.

Construction also began on a new automated parking access and revenue collection system at cruise terminals that Port Commissioners approved last year. The new automated system becomes operational in August.

The Canaveral Port Authority is committed to maintaining the highest standards of integrity and ethical behavior. Port staff recently completed new business code of conduct and ethics training, which provided additional information and reporting avenues for employees.

As a result of the internal investigation, four employees have been terminated and three placed on administrative leave. The Canaveral Port Authority is cooperating fully with the continuing FDLE investigation, which may result in additional action upon its conclusion.
