Sheriff’s Office receives 18th consecutive, perfect financial audit


Monroe County Sheriff Rick Ramsay is pleased to announce the Sheriff’s Office has received an error-free independent audit of its financial operations and procedures for the 18th consecutive year.


The audit is performed every year by independent auditors with no ties to the Sheriff’s Office to ensure public trust between the agency and taxpayers.


The 2020 audit did not find any deficiencies in its review of all Sheriff’s Office financial transactions. The Sheriff’s Office remains fiscally responsible and committed to operating with professionalism, integrity and transparency at the forefront.


“I am continually impressed by our Sheriff’s Office Finance Division which continues to serve the taxpayers of this county,” said Sheriff Rick Ramsay. “I am committed to transparency with the public and that includes financial transparency.”


The Sheriff’s Office is also a Triple Crown Award winner regarding its accreditation status. The Triple Crown Award is given to Sheriff’s Offices which achieve simultaneous accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of the American Correctional Association, The Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement and the National Commission on Correctional Health Care. Financial excellence is required in keeping such accreditation status.
