Sheriff’s Office receives 20th consecutive, perfect financial audit

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 20th 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 2022 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.

While the Sheriff’s Office celebrated another perfect audit, it also said goodbye to retiring Finance Executive Director Lisa Knowles who has served with distinction as the Sheriff’s Office CFO for a decade.

“I want to thank the Finance Division for their continued excellence and especially retiring Executive Director Lisa Knowles,” said Sheriff Rick Ramsay. “Mrs. Knowles has shared my commitment to financial transparency and I wish her the best in retirement while I welcome Jill Cranney-Black as our new Finance Executive Director.”

The Sheriff’s Office is 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.
