Missouri State Auditor Releases Results Of Greene County Sheriff's Office Audit

Greene County Sheriff

The Greene County Sheriff’s Office has received a rating of “good” in an audit released Monday by the Missouri State Auditor’s office. 

Auditor, Nicole Galloway, said in a news release her office “remains committed to completing a thorough, independent review of county finances and operations.”

The audit found that, in the sheriff’s Jail Administration Division, accounting duties are not adequately segregated and supervisory review of the division’s financial records is needed.  It also found that receipting and depositing procedures in several office divisions also need better controls and that improvement is needed in the reconciliation process for several office bank accounts.

Galloway’s office recommended the sheriff implement several measures to improve accounting controls and procedures.  Her office said Sheriff Jim Arnott has indicated his office has already taken steps to implement the recommendations or is committed to doing so.

The review of Greene County government was initiated at the request of the County Commission.
