Sheriff’s office audit results released

KNOX COUNTY — The results of an audit conducted by Kentucky Auditor Adam Edelen’s office on the Knox County Sheriff’s Office have been released.

A press release issued by Edelen indicated the only concern that elicited a comment was “the sheriff’s office lacks adequate segregation of duties.”

“This condition is the result of a limited budget, which restricts the number of employees the sheriff can hire or delegate duties to,” Edelen said.

Edelen did note the sheriff or another employee documented oversight of some financial transactions, but the bulk of the duties were completed by the sheriff’s bookkeeper. These duties include collecting payments from customers, preparing deposits and writing checks.

In his response to the comment, Sheriff John Pickard wrote, “As our funds are limited, we are a small office staff. All staff members have to perform multiple duties. We are always striving to improve.”

State law requires the auditor’s office to audit the accounts of all sheriffs’ offices each year.
