Delaware State Police spending more than $184,000 in overtime and helicopter costs during last year’s Vaughn Correctional Prison riot. Delaware State News filed a FOIA request to get the information. About $108,000 of overtime was racked up during the initial response operation; $69,000 during the subsequent investigation. However, state police say they were only able to provide numbers for overtime costs, so its unknown exactly how much the incident cost the state. However, Governor John Carney has asked for $2.5 million more for the state police budget this year.
