Sheriff's office audit findings released

-A A +A
By The Staff

 State Auditor Crit Luallen released the audit of the 2008 financial statement of the Grant County Sheriff, Charles Dills. State law requires the auditor to annually audit the accounts of each county sheriff. In compliance with this law, the auditor issues two sheriff’s reports each year: one reporting on the audit of the sheriff’s tax account and the other reporting on the audit of the fee account used to operate the office.

The audit found that the sheriff’s financial statement presents fairly the revenues, expenditures and excess fees of the Grant County Sheriff in conformity with the regulatory basis of accounting.

The auditor noted no instances of noncompliance. The auditor also noted no matters involving internal control over financial reporting and its operation that were considered to be material weaknesses.

The sheriff’s responsibilities include collecting property taxes, providing law enforcement and performing services for the county fiscal court and courts of justice. The sheriff’s office is funded through statutory commissions and fees collected in conjunction with these duties.
